REVIEWS OF Strand 3 IN Iowa

Kilted Hammer

Small town theater so not the latest and greatest but certainly adequate

Anthony Nieuwsma

The Strand tries hard to provide variety in it's show offerings and offers reasonable pricing. Stadium seating in 2 of the 3 theaters. Nice variety of snacks. Helpful staff. FREE popcorn on Tuesdays!

Matthew E Nordin

Such a great theater for the price. It won't have the mega screen or crowds as others, but those will cost you twice as much. Very generous on their popcorn as well!

Benjamin Rupe

Love movies and this facility, while the auditoriums are small, there are three of them, giving viewers a choice. Perfect for the size of our community.


I have gone to the theater twice In this week and walked out both times. The employees are not that pleasant but the theater is nice.

We moved to Grinnell last year, and went from occasional movie goers to regulars because we love the Strand. Wonderful experience, fantastic people, the best popcorn, and it's much more reasonable than other movie theatres! We have also been known to get the popcorn to go:)

This is a fantastic local theatre and we love supporting it. It has 3 screens, plenty of seating, is always clean and quiet, and great customer service! Snacks/concessions are a little spendy, but we still get them every time.

The employees are some of the rudest people I have ever met.. Especially the "big girl" with black sort of wavy hair. I have been here several times because I always give a places more chances because I don't want there to be problem and want to be satisfied. The lady I'm talking about here has played cards several times with other employees in front of me and sighed loudly when she had to help me. On one occasion she actually ROLLED HER EYES yes rolled her eyes at me. I really don't know what her deal is I'm quite polite but she always has a attitude and speak to me quite rude. Anytime I have asked a polite question she has sarcastically answered me and last time I was here she interrupted the movie we were seeing several times to cram other guests into chairs they did not want to sit in. So not only did she force ppl to be uncomfortable but she interrupted my and everyone else movie many times missing many beginning parts of it. MANAGEMENT please reach out to me and let me know how this is going to be solved or if your going to correct your employees attitudes.

A little pricey. They offer free kids movies in summer which is awesome!!

Mike Pizzle

Just to be clear here when I say the employees play cards in their down time I understand this is something they do out of boredom. But setting up the entire of stack of cards right in front of me as in shuffling and laying them out in stacks on your side and then the stacka for the employee on their side your playing against, then playing several moves in front of me while rudely telling me your help me in a minute while I have been standing their for at least a minute in the middle of my movie just wanting a refill is rude. Then sighing loudly or rolling eyes and acting aggitated with me while I stand their dumbfounded and polite. The card playing thing has happened on at least two occasions. Seriously rude

The Strand has been a local institution my whole life. I love this place! Great, friendly staff. First run movies at great prices! I highly recommend watching movies here.


Good I mean you go there to watch movies nice seats and good popcorn

David Cline

It's a nice little theater. But they really should have had more than one person working concessions on a Saturday at 6:30.

Nikunj Agrawal

Went to watch split. The movie hall is small and a bit pricey but you could go here if you want to go out for a weekend and you're bored of eating at a restaurant.

Carissa Tigges

Amber Buchanan

Love this place. It is quiet kid friendly and reasonably priced. Pop corn and snacks are the only expensive stuff where they get you, but their popcorn is the best. And you get to refill it. So between my 4 kids and I we refill at least 2 times then refill before we go home.

Awesome, 3 screen theater that's well managed. Rachel is the manager of the Strand and she is one of the most professional and helpful managers I've ever met. I dropped my wallet while I was watching a late showing and by the time I returned home and realized it, the theater was closed. I left a message on their phone that evening and called again in the morning. Luckily, I spoke with Rachel and she said she did have my wallet and I picked it up after lunch the next day when the theater opened. As expected, all my money was gone and with how dishonest people can be these days, I wasn't surprised. I quickly called Rachel back once I realized my money was gone, just to let her know. I wasn't going to make a big fuss, I love this small town theater and want to give it my business. I simply wanted to inform her of the situation as she would likely know who was on staff and cleaning up the night before. We hung up the phone and to my surprise, 10 minutes later Rachel called me back and noted that she had recovered my money! All this to say, the Strand is led with integrity and honesty, the ticket prices are cheap and the theater is clean and well kept. It isn't your big city, huge screen theater, but it's a quaint, small town theater that's I love!

Frank Shults

It's ok

Small town movie theater. This theater has multiple smaller theaters. It is very clean and the staff are friendly. It is a great place to go after a dinner in town.


Cute little theater. We go here if I don't feel like driving to Altoona. Runs cold, so bring a jacket. Two complaints though, the first is that if you want a refill on your popcorn they will make you wait in line. Unlike major theaters who will grab that refill and send you on your way. This is a big deal when they have a line of 10 families ordering and paying. You easily will miss 10-15 minutes of your movie for a refill. Almost not worth it honestly. I even asked if I could just get a refill after waiting 10 minutes and they said no, you have to wait in line. The other major thing is they will overseat the free movies. I watched people walk in after spending a lot on concessions and have to sit on the floor. So always check before purchasing concessions for seats!
