WE MADE IT! (mostly) Thank you everyone for all the support this Summer. It has been a record season. Although we fell short of our fundraising goal, we have gotten close enough and made a few deals to start installing projectors! We will not be able to do everything we wanted and in the next year or so there will be additional upgrades, so we will continue to need your support. Again, thank you.

The Owners Steve Thompson and Marcya and Grant Grudzina We love movies, pure and simple.

We are pleased to introduce Dubuque’s independent theater to our community. We know it’s not always possible to see the great films outside of the studio system released each year. The foreign films that are causing a stir. The critically acclaimed but small studio films that don’t play on multiplex screens long, if ever. The classic movies that were always best on the big screen but have not been accessible that way in years. In short, the movies you love but don’t see ads for on television.

But we are so much more than just an independent theater. Mindframe is a home for cultural events of many kinds. Live theatrical performances, private parties, concerts and everything else your heart and mind can conjure.

Great, so it’s open again. I hope they do well.

Kennedy Mall has been given new life. The theater has been remodeled into Mindframe Theaters, which will focus on showing smaller, independent and foreign films as well as playing some old classics as well. I really hope they’re successful.

I can’t come up with any show times, so it may in fact be closed.

We were in Dubuque this past weekend and this theater sure looked closed.
