I have fond memories of this place. I was homeless in Des Moines in the summer of 1996 and sometimes escaped the heat and the misery that surrounded me by watching a movie there. I even wrote about it in my book, The Homeless Man’s Journal. I saw The Phantom, Twister, Celtic Pride, and I believe DragonHeart there.
