GARNER, IA – Back in October, we brought you the story about renovations to a historical theater. Well that project is right on schedule.

The Avery Theater in Garner has been a real work in progress over many years.

The plan is to have a single-screen set up for the community to enjoy all types of movies for just a few dollars.

Those involved with the project say it’s great to see an end in sight.

Garner Mayor, Kenton Mick said, “This has been a long project, 6 years plus and working towards this and over half a million dollars worth of investments, so it’s taken us some time and I think the public is going to be extremely pleased with what they see in the finished product.”

The project recently received a state CAT grant of $45,000 and is expected to open July 12th.
