The Englert Theatre opened in Iowa City, Iowa on September 26, 1912 as a theatrical venue, known for its state of the art film equipment. In 2012 The Englert  has once again established notoriety, as it continues to provide quality theatrical events, gaining a following of small venue minded artists and attracting attendees with superb hearing.
