How Kansas City's Independent Movie Theaters Survive

If you want to catch a flick in Kansas City, there are plenty of options. You could stream movies from your own couch, or venture out to a multiplex for an IMAX screen experience. We explore what keeps so many Kansas Citians going to smaller, independent movie theaters. 

Guests: 

  • Brian Mossman is the owner of Fine Arts Group which operates theaters like the Rio, and the Glenwood Arts Center.
  • Adam Roberts is the owner of Screenland Armour and Screenland Crossroads (known as Tapcade).
  • Jerry Harrington is the owner of the Tivoli Cinemas in Westport.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region. Email me at lisa@kcur.org or follow me on Twitter @larodrig.
