Frank E. Wetherell and Roland Harrison or Wetherell & Harrison created the Zephyr Theatre opening in 1940 out of an old garage for the Central States Theatre Circuit of Des Moines. The 576 seat theatre was a streamline moderne house named after the famous streamline moderne train service of the day, the Burlington Zephyr. Kucharo Construction did the project which included load transfer after the removal of an arch girder that would have blocked the projector’s throw. The theatre fulfilled a 15-year lease closing in 1955.
