Ragtag Cinema

Opened in July 2000 as the Ragtag Cinema Cafe, this single screen theatre is located in the thriving downtown section of Columbia. Their motto is “A theatre without a beer is just a museum”. It was renamed Ragtag Cinema in 2001 and plays independent films. They also have art shows at the theatre and are co-sponsors of the Missouri Theatre Film Series at the Missouri Theatre down the street. They also hold film festivals at the Ragtag Cinema.

This theatre is the inspiration of the great Moxie Cinema in Springfield, Missouri.

The name is, I believe, a reference to the organization’s origins. It began as a film series without a permanent home specializing in foreign and classic films. Most films were shown at the Blue Note. Eventually a few were also shown at the Missouri Theatre, beginning a lengthy collaboration. It was perhaps several years later that they opened their own cinema at it’s first location on 10th Street, and another five to ten years before they moved to their current location.

The Ragtag Cinema’s original name was called the “Ragtag Cinemacafe” when it first opened in July 2000, but the name was shorten to just Ragtag Cinema in early 2001.
