Actor Hugh Jackman didn't just show up for the reopening of the historic Metropolitan Theater in Iowa Falls Saturday night.

Jackman, his wife and children arrived in Iowa Falls on Saturday afternoon and went fishing at a city park before moving on to festivities at the 114-year-old refurbished movie theater. Jackman greeted hundreds of people outside the theater, which was showing two of his movies.

The visit came at the invitation of John Whitesell, who bought and restored the theater. Whitesell's son is Jackman's agent. The theater, originally an opera house, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

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