While travelling through Iowa, my wife and I visited the Watts Theatre. Since the theater was not open at the time, we proceeded to photograph the exterior. With its bold colors, sleek metalwork, and tower marquee, it is an impressive example of mid-century theater design. To see it restored to its original splendor was an amazing thing. I look forward to being able to return someday to see the rest of what is undoubtedly an amazing cinema!
