Mission Statement

Grow a vibrant local film culture and community.


The Varsity Cinema is a community art house operated by the 501(c)3 Des Moines Film, with a mission of growing a vibrant local film culture and community.

The Varsity provides a home for the Des Moines film community - both film lovers and aspiring filmmakers - to connect face-to-face, highlight diverse voices and challenging topics, and provide a space for deeper engagement. Varsity Cinema also acts as an inclusive space that sparks discussion and meaningful dialogue - where the broader community can experience new, sometimes challenging, ideas on screen.

We feature a variety of programming including prestige new releases, the best of art house & international, curated repertory series and classics, upscale genre and late-night movies, kids and family series, and much more.
