Address: 121 North John Wayne Drive Winterset, IA
The Iowa Theater was our first true destination visit. We travelled to Iowa to photograph the theater before they opened for the day, then returned that evening for a nighttime marquee shoot and to catch a movie and experience everything the theater has to offer.
The first thing we notices was the beautiful, compact auditorium. While smaller than some auditoriums, with the original vaudeville mouldings in place, it was a perfect venue. The staff had a true connection to the town and felt immense pride in the theater. The patrons obviously had a deep love for the theater as well.
All in all, a great theater to enjoy a night at the movies. If you visit, do yourself a favor and enjoy everything that Winterset has to offer. You'll be glad you did.
