The Missouri got a new marquee in 1967, according to a Nov. 26, 1967 story in the Columbia Missourian. That article also said that the Missouri opened on May 18, 1936 with “The Traveling Saleslady.”

Keeping up with movie theatres is difficult. Here’s an article about Columbia’s theatres, including the Missouri Theatre – no longer primarily showing movies, but live performances. By the way, the Missouri Theatre was not the only “movie palace.” At one time, Columbia had three movie palaces on one street, all with roughly 1,000 seats. Two are still used for entertainment, the third is a restaurant. Here are the details on movie theatres in Columbia. http://columbiabusinesstimes.com/8240/2010/06/25/capturing-columbia%E2%80%99s-cinema-century/

The original theatre organ from the Missouri Theatre is up for sale! It is a 3/7 Robert-Morton built in 1928 and is apparently mostly complete.

They only want about $4,750.00 which is really cheap!

It would be REALLY nice if someone in MO could buy the organ, restore it, and re-install it back in the theatre!

This description is out of date. Movies are shown here, but only as special events. It has been owned by the Missouri Symphony Society for a while now.
