Ragtag Cinema is a non-profit independent movie theater located on Hitt Street in Columbia, Missouri. The theater was founded by a group including Paul Sturtz and David Wilson in May 2000. The theater is the home of the Ragtag Film Society, a nonprofit organization which strives to champion film and other media arts to stimulate and encourage the culture of the community. It does so by spotlighting film as an art form, promoting media literacy, education and new ideas as well as supporting local artists. The theater also serves as a primary venue for the True/False Film Fest, which was launched by Sturtz and Wilson in 2004.Use our Columbia sightseeing planning app to add Ragtag Cinema and other attractions to your Columbia vacation plans.

The theater moved to its present location a few blocks away in 2009. Several other small businesses are housed at the same address, including Uprise Bakery and Hitt Records.

Great place to see a movie. Quiet, no one talking or kicking the back of your seat while watching a movie. Plus you can have a glass of wine or other adult beverage while you watch a movie!
Interesting and unique atmosphere. I recommend checking it out at some point. Make sure you do have a covid vaccine card ready tho.
