Arts and Culture

Description and Mission

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit, community-supported theater that showcases a variety of films and performing arts in a vibrant, inviting setting. As Columbia's premiere art house movie theater, Ragtag Cinema exhibits independent, international, and alternative documentary, narrative, and avant-garde films. Many of our films are presented with personal appearances by filmmakers, critics, and scholars to foster film appreciation and stimulate discussion. Beyond movies, we regularly host an array of live music, theater, comedy, poetry readings, and multimedia art by local and touring artists. Ragtag Cinema is dedicated to enhancing the cultural environment of Columbia, MO. Thus, we value the dynamic, ever-evolving relationship we share with our audience. We are proud of the partnerships that we've developed with local nonprofits, schools, businesses, and other organizations. Our quality programming aims to both satisfy our community's wide range of tastes and interests and exhibit cutting-edge work of the present and past which otherwise would not be locally accessible.
