The Charles Theatre was designed by the Des Moines architectural firm Wetherell & Harrison.

Originally independently owned by an exec of Central States theatres, it was sold a few years ago to a local theatre group and has been lovingly rehabilitated with newer seating and a marquee like the originall one but with electronic messag board instead of changing letters by hand..restrooms are on the first floor now …the theatre never had a balcony although the origninal restrooms were on the second floor..a job well done…seniors get in for 1 dollar…a bargain runs all the time….
