Tickets are $75 per person, and include an open bar, an array of savory and sweet treats catered by Petite Café, bottomless popcorn, and a screening of the classic film, “It Happened One Night,” starring Clarke Gable and Claudette Colbert. Doors open at 5:30, and the movie starts at 6:30, giving attendees plenty of time to mingle, munch, and settle in for a delightful 1934 romantic comedy.

The event is targeted at reducing The Iowa’s renovation debt and local merchants are on board with gala specials.
