Sysmä Theaterhouse was originally The Sysmän Säästöpankki bank. This bank was established in 1880, but this building wasn´t built until 1898. It was designed by architects Nyström-Penttilä-Petrelius in Helsinki. This beautiful building represents the national romantic style. It has a very rich past. Säästöpankki bank operated there until 1936, when the bank´s new locations were opened.
After 1936 there have been many different uses for this building such as for school classes, a furniture company, even the Finnish White Guard took place there etc. Nowadays it is the home of Sysmä´s movie theatre and also a venue for our local amateur theater. This house can also be rented for different occasions like birthdays, funerals, weddings etc.
