The New Varsity Theatre is a neighborhood theatre which has been in operation since December 25, 1938. It was a conversion of an existing two-story building and replaced an older Varsity Theatre which was located around the corner on University Avenue.
It showed independent films and is located close to Drake University. It was closed on December 30, 2018 with “Cinema Paradiso”. In June 2021 it was given landmark status and renovations began.
It was reopened as the Varsity Cinema with two screens on December 15, 2022 screening Gene Kelly in “Singing in the Rain”.
