About the Metropolitan Theater
Built in 1899, the Metropolitan Theater is considered one of the state's preeminent opera houses and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Throughout its 114-year history, the Met has housed artists such as Otis Skinner, Walker Whiteside, and John Phillip Sousa. It also served as the exclusive venue for productions from Ellsworth College and Iowa Falls High School.
From Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve, "Prisoners" is one of the season's most anticipated new dramas. It follows a desperate father searching for answers after his young daughter is kidnapped. Led by Jackman and Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal ("Brokeback Mountain"), "Prisoners" features an all-star cast, including Paul Dano ("Looper"), Maria Bello ("Beautiful Boy"), and Terrence Howard ("Hustle & Flow").
