Valentine Gala

The Iowa Theater

Those who cherish Winterset’s single-screen theater for its movies, stage productions, special events, and 540-lightbulb marquee can express their love on February 4 at the theater’s first fundraising gala, titled WE [heart] THE IOWA. 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. Angel Wings & CT will take 25% off regular price dressy ensembles throughout January, up to the day of the event. “Just let our staff know you’re going to the party,” proprietor Nicole Kems said. Terri Kuhns at Village Bootery will discount selected men’s and women’s dressy shoe styles now through the day of the event by 20%. Ladies can call Salon 107 at 515-462-4247 to schedule special event hairstyling for $30. Anyone who purchases any “Love” related jewelry at B Shannon Designs on February 3rd or 4th will be treated to special handmade chocolates from Infusion Chocolates.
