This theatre is the inspiration of the great Moxie Cinema in Springfield, Missouri.

The name is, I believe, a reference to the organization’s origins. It began as a film series without a permanent home specializing in foreign and classic films. Most films were shown at the Blue Note. Eventually a few were also shown at the Missouri Theatre, beginning a lengthy collaboration. It was perhaps several years later that they opened their own cinema at it’s first location on 10th Street, and another five to ten years before they moved to their current location.
