Classic film screenings on this site are described broadly – if a theater screens a film made before 1990 even a few times a year they qualify. Film festivals that may occur in multiple  theaters and film societies that produce classic film events are included in this list as well. You’ll also find many theaters that mostly screen current films but offer classic film screenings either during the summer or on a weekly basis.

When possible we try and highlight information such as if a theater is a restored movie palace, screens classic films regularly, screens silent films, hosts festivals, or has live musical accompaniments. We’re always happy to update our listing with updated information or include photos of venues. Contact us at for any update requests on our Iowa classic film screenings page.
