It has relocated again to about a block south of the College Station multiplex, on Campbell Avenue, in a new building.

What a shame to see this for sale. It was so cool the way it was before the big move .I have sent many people to there web site as to show people “how its done”.Over the last 16 months you can see they have lost there fire. The web site was not as cool and they did not keep it up like they use to. I have never been to this theater but have admired it from a far.

This is Dan, the owner of The Moxie. Just to make things clear, this is the first time the business has been for sale. The listing from above (quoting $550,000) was for the building that we used to be located in, not the business.

Congrats to the Moxie! I grew up in Springfield (60’s and early 70’s). Back then there was no place to see an indie unless one of the chains (Dickinson, Mann ) picked one up. Occasionally you could catch a foreign or classic revival at the Student U. at Southwest Mo State University but that location (the center ballroom) was less than ideal. Next time I’m in Springfield, I hope to check out the Moxie.

Hello everyone. This is Dan with The Moxie. Just to be clear, the building is for sale, not the business. We’re moving three blocks to the East of our current location, and I’ll add a new entry on this site once we’re fully operational. Our old space is already rented, and the new tenant plans on removing all auditorium and booth walls, eliminating the possibility of another theater moving into the space.

A few weeks ago I was visiting Springfield, drove west on Walnut from the Park Central Square area, stopped for a light and saw on the left…The MOXIE! A NEW single-screen movie theatre in the downtown area of a mid-american city!?! Had to pull over, take a picture and catch my breath. Didn’t have time to stop and see a movie – but will next time for sure. Love the upright/blade sign (M – O – X – I – E – MOXIE) and the “Dr. Pepper” letterboard! Search photobucket.com for MOXIE and THEATRE – starting 6/22/07.

No, it began as a bank and was converted into the cozy little Moxie. Please snooty New Yorkers, don’t be turned off!

Hey, Nicole, it’s Matthew or RJ. Your posting beat my posting for the Moxie, but congratulations anyway. You’re on Cinema Treasures!
