The historic 1912 Opera house is still on operation. The Wieting theatre re- opened Feb. 2012 following a multi- million dollar historical restoration led by community activists. This old opera house is a restored gem worth visiting!
The history of the theater goes back to the opening with “II Trovatore” showing on Sept. 12, 1912. The Theater was a gift to the people of Toledo by Mrs. P. G. Wieting who donated the theater in memory of her husband. In those days, people dressed up to go to the theater and tickets were sold from $1.50 to $2.50 each.
The Wieting Theatre is located in downtown Toledo, one block east of the stoplight and the Tama County Courthouse square, at 101 South Church Street. Since 1960 the theatre has been maintained and operated by the Wieting Theatre Guild, a nonprofit organization of members and volunteers dedicated to keeping the doors of this grand old theatre open for many years to come. Movies play on most Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings throughout the year. Actors, singers and dancers of all ages take the stage on numerous other occasions.
All movies begin at 7:00 PM unless noted otherwise.
2D features are $3 per person and 3D features are $4 per person for all ages.
The calendar is subject to change without notice.
Check out the theater and enjoy and evening in a small town in Iowa!!
