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 first location, in a small storefront on 10th Street, featured couches and chairs to accommodate up to 75 guests for its one screen. 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, 9th Street Video, and Hitt Records.

Great place. Wonderful atmosphere. Just a word of caution. The sofas are super comfy but we had neck strain because they are so close to the screen. We will try the seats next time. We will definitely be back!
Wonderful local cinema that features indie and small showing pictures. The atmosphere is so cozy and it's really awesome to have non-traditional seating available during movies. Make sure to check out Uprise Bakery located inside for an amazing treat to enjoy during the show.
