Temple Theater

Located on the second floor of the Temple for Performing Arts, the Temple Theater is one of Des Moines most intimate performance venues. Home to DMPA’s Temple Comedy Series and Live At The Temple Concert Series, both sponsored by Prairie Meadows, the Temple Theater offers guests the opportunity to feel like a part of the performance.
