This 2012 weblog article about the King Theatre says that it was opened in 1930 by Milton and Sara Mansfield, who had operated the Strand and Rivola Theatres since their arrival in Belle Plaine in 1927. The Strand was closed when the King opened, and the Rivola was closed the following year. The King Theatre has been operated by members of the Mansfield family since opening.

The King Theatre is still open showing current attractions according to the recording when you call the theatre.

As must be obvious from the pictures, the building is yellow brick (with limestone sills/accents), and the marquee is one story tall. The sides are cheaper rough red brick. The original windows have now been replaced by unsympathetic modern ones. Was not running a movie last weekend, but promised Toy Story 4 the next two weekends. Seems to also be used as a community arts theater, according to their FB page.

Toured the King Theatre this passed fall. I was looking thru the window and the owner opened the door and gave us the nickle tour. The place is aged but still in operation.
