Charles Theatre (Charles City) and Watts Theatre (Osage) most likely to remain closed until 2021

The Charles Theatre in Charles City and the Watt’s Theatre in Osage are reporting the same thing – they are waiting until 2021 to even consider reopening their theatre.

Back in June, Watt’s management posted a statement:

It read: ‘Watts has no idea when it will reopen.’

Charles Theatre Manager Karen Youngerman says for them, it could depend on the new release schedules.


Youngerman says the most recent release that theatres had access to was ‘Tenet’ directed by Chrisopher Nolan. She says that the venues who bought the rights to show it, reported low attendance even on the weekends. 

With more waiting inevitable, Youngerman believes the Charles Theatre will be fine financially.
