Tivoli Cinemas Tries New Script for Digital System: Kickstarter

Kansas City’s oldest independent theater could be going dark by the end of the year.

The 30-year-old Tivoli Cinemas has been a landmark in Westport since 1983, when its 104-seat storefront movie theater played classic movies — usually a different one every day. Then it started diversifying to the mix it now plays as one of the city’s only art theaters, showing documentaries, emerging filmmaker projects, American independent films, foreign films, broadcasts of theater from London, and ballets and operas from all over the world. It also partners with Kansas City Public Television and the University of Missouri-Kansas City to host film classes and festivals. Read more here.
