When Kansas City's oldest independent theater closed in April after nearly 40 years in Westport, Tivoli Cinemas owner Jerry Harrington said he didn't expect it to open again.
"No, I did not," said Harrington. "I really thought I was retired."
But that was before Julián Zugazagoitia, director and CEO of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art — who Harrington describes as "the man who has many ideas, many good ideas" — reached out to him.
Starting in October, the Tivoli will re-open as the Tivoli at the Nelson-Atkins.
