Old Art Deco movie theater in Iowa near completion
GARNER (AP) — After a multi-year restoration effort, volunteers are only a month away from reopening an 82-year-old Art Deco movie theater in the small northern Iowa city of Garner.
The seats, screen and digital projection equipment are now in place at the Avery Theater, which began its restoration after a nonprofit agency bought the building in 2008, the Mason City Globe Gazette reported.
Organizers say they’ve tried to retain the theater’s original look, including red clay tile that’s been extended from the ticket booth into the lobby.
