IOWA FALLS, Iowa (AP) - Fans of actor Hugh Jackman were gathering early outside the Metropolitan Theater in Iowa Falls.

Jackman planned to attend the Saturday night reopening of the northern Iowa city's 114-year-old movie theater, and fans like Gretchen Skellenger were eager to see him.

Skellenger told the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier she didn't have tickets to see Jackman's movies playing inside the renovated theater, but she hoped to see him outside.

Skellenger calls Jackman "a fantastic actor" and notes she's an aspiring actress.

Jackman's visit came at the invitation of John Whitesell, who bought and restored the theater. Whitesell's son is Jackman's agent.

The Australian actor's visit comes amid a promotional tour for his film, "Prisoners."

The theater was originally an opera house. It's listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
