Louise and Amelia Schroeder of Cedar Rapids were here over Memorial Day. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Frese and family oi Lansing spent Decoration Day in Postville. IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY JUNE 3, 4 and 5 "THE PIRATES OF MONTERY" In the cast are Maria Montez. Rod Cameron and Philip Reed Filmed in the beautiful Sierra Madre mountains and in Brilliant Technicolor this film is really beautiful. And Maria Montez is definitely not hard on the eyes. There is action galore in this out of door action film. There is comedy, too. with a new comer, Michael Ramsey, always getting in trouble with the ladies. ALSO Laurel and Hardy in A thirty minute comedy entitled "THE CHIMP" Sure, this is an old one— but — it is so funny that you will laugh until your sides ache. It now looks as though there will be no more of these extra length comedies. We have run all that are available so don't miss this one. SUNDAY - MONDAY JUNE 6 and 7 "THE WISTFUL WIDOW OF WAGON GAP" with Lou Costello, *Bud Abbot and Morjorie Main If there ever has been a funnier comedy than this one, then what can it be. Marjorie Main, who was so very good in "The Egg and I," is even better in this one. Sure you can't afford to miss this treat and it is a treat indeed. Old Marjorie is cast again as a mother with a huge flock of kids looking for a husband and she sets her eyes on Costello. From there on you can see whats brewing. Extra added attraction—''Celebration Days," a beautiful Technicolor Subject covering the 1947 Minneapolis Aquatennial. This is really worth seeing. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 8:30 O'CLOCK P. M. TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY JUNE 8 and 9 "YOU CAN'T CHEAT AN HONEST MAN" with W. C. Fields, Edgar Bergen, Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd Keleased in 1942 this comedy has never played in Postville, but there are many who will really enjoy seeing this. Wish the new films were as good as this one. "THE PRAIRIE EXPRESS" We have played only two Johnny Mack Brown "westerns" and the comments were very favorable to him. Here you have another action packed film that not only is a thriller but whose scenic back grounds are beautiful. Tuesday & Wednesday CASH NIGHTS!
