Elkader Cinema

The Elkader Cinema was built in 1941. The theater closed around 1993 and sat vacant for a decade. Lee and Diane Akin along with a local volunteer group have refurbished this old movie theater. They received a $50,000 grant from the Main Street Iowa program, $20,000 from the Upper Mississippi Gaming Commission and many private donations. The original marquee from 1941 was repaired and reused. The Elkader Cinema is once again showing movies.

Same operators as Prairie Cinema in Prairie Du Chien. Also offers video rentals.
