Goodbye To The Tivoli

The owner of Kansas City's oldest independent movie theater talks about his decision to close.

Jerry Harrington has been a boon to independent, documentary and foreign filmmakers for devoting the screens of The Tivoli to their work for 35 years.  He explained how he managed to grow the audience for these types of films, added innovative content over the decades and gifted Kansas City with the opportunity to see many of the greatest films ever made.
