LAKE MILLS, IA — With no movie theater within miles, residents are banding together to construct a new theater that will also be used for performing arts.

In Lake Mills, construction of a theater may begin in a few weeks. It will resemble the 1937 art deco building it is replacing. The goal is to have the theater open for the July Jubilee celebration July 13-15.

The Mills Theatre closed in the spring of 2001. Since then, residents have had to drive to Forest City, Mason City and beyond for movies, with high gas prices adding to the price of a ticket.
