DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — An exhibit focusing on Iowa's place in movie history has been announced by Gov. Terry Branstad. "Hollywood In The Heartland" opens at the State Historical Museum of Iowa on June 27.

It features a 6,400-square-foot exhibit of Hollywood memorabilia including Academy Awards won by actresses Cloris Leachman and Donna Reed, both Iowa natives.

Items from other Iowa-born actors including John Wayne, Ashton Kutcher, Brandon Routh, and Tom Arnold are on display.

Arnold, an Ottumwa native, is scheduled to appear at the exhibit's premier to talk about his movie making experiences.

The exhibit discusses movies made in Iowa including "Field of Dreams" and "Bridges of Madison County."

It also offers historical information and artifacts from some of Iowa's historical movie theaters including drive-in theaters.
