The Circle was the smaller of the Main Street theatres. Seating was listed at a little under 200. It was located just a few blocks west of the larger Niles. I couldn’t find the opening date but the theatre closed in the early 50’s.

205 W. Main Street is currently the location of Knuckleheads, a bar and restaurant with live music. (Google Street View has its numbers a block off, showing this location as being in the 100 block.)

In 1937, Clifford Niles and his son Charles operated three theaters in Anamosa, according to an item in The Film Daily of November 15. The names of the theaters were not given, but the Circle must have been one of them, along with the Niles. I’ve been unable to find the name of the third theater.
