IOWA FALLS, Iowa – It’s lights, camera and action in Iowa Falls as a Hollywood actor brings his fame to a one of a kind movie premiere.
It’s not often that there’s a red carpet event in a small north Iowa town, much less one that includes an A-list actor. But on Saturday night, Hugh Jackman did more than just premiere his movie. He’s also helped an entire community.
Jackman decided that the re-opening of the historic Metropolitan Theater should be a really big deal. The red carpet affair marked the official re-grand opening of the 114-year old building.
Folks from all walks of life hoped to catch a glimpse of the Oscar-nominated star, and Jackman appeared genuinely pleased to be part of it all.
Those who purchased tickets to the event were ultimately supporting the Ellsworth Hospital Foundation.
