A historic theater in small-town Iowa has had a big makeover and now a movie star will be on hand for its grand re-opening.

Hugh Jackman will be in Iowa Falls later this month to act as host at the re-opening of the Metropolitan Theater. The event on September 21st will feature the premiere of Jackman’s newest film Prisoners as well as a screening of The Wolverine.

The theater, owned by John Whitesell, now features an upgraded interior and a digital project system.

Whitesell’s son, Patrick is Jackman’s agent and a long-time friend of the family.

You can buy tickets from noon to 4:00 p.m. Friday at the Iowa Falls Chamber. There are 100 tickets available for $100 a piece.

You can also get a raffle ticket to win a movie stub from several Iowa Falls Banks. Those cost $25 each.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Ellsworth Hospital Foundation in Iowa Falls, which will use the money to buy new equipment for the Ellsworth Municipal Hospital.
