I am really sad the varsity theater closed. They played some fantastic independent movies, and had some fun midnight screenings.

The Varsity II closed at the end of 2008. No word yet what will happen to the theater.

Here’s an illustrated web page about the Varsity Theatre</a>, courtesy of the Ames Historical Society. It says that the Varsity was designed by the Des Moines architectural firm Wetherell & Harrison, and that the same firm also designed the Collegian Theatre in Ames.
