The Garden Theater sat on the north side of Locust Street, directly facing the Strand Theater. It had no balcony and was rather plain. It ran mostly second-run releases and B movies, but not too many oaters.

This web page about Des Moines architect Norman T. Vorse says that he designed the Garden Theatre, among others. As the Garden was in operation before 1919, when Vorse merged his practice with that of the Kraetsch Brothers, this was one of his solo projects.
