about the studio

Studio Be’s “Dillinger Studio” is located in an iconic and historical building built in 1916, which became famous in 1934 when the Security National Bank was robbed by John Dillinger and his gang in a brazen daylight heist. Today, the completely renovated seven-story building has 30,000 square feet of residential, office and retail space in the heart of downtown Sioux Falls, SD.
