A NOTE FROM THE ORPHEUM DIRECTOR – While movies and music are the core of our programming at the Orpheum, we also want to do community-directed activities. Examples include:

  • a monthly Poetry group that meets the fourth Thursday of each month (no charge)
  • Wine & Beer Tasting groups
  • historically, we hosted an Anime group and a group that played UNO
  • the Jean Seberg Festival for the Arts

If you have a cultural interest which you’d like to see sustained at the Orpheum, send me an email, and we’ll set up a time to talk!

The Orpheum Theater is located at 220 E. Main Street in Marshalltown, Iowa. The Orpheum is owned and operated by Iowa Valley Community College District. For upcoming movies, call the Movie Line at 641-844-5907.
