Calling All Film Lovers: SOS–Save the Tivoli!

Click on the poster above to visit the Kickstarter page for Save The Tivoli.

Love your local independent theatre or lose it fast. The Tivoli theatre MUST go digital by or go dark because the industry demands it.  Even though everything works just fine, some folks need to make more dimes by forcing new techno toys on everyone else. Jerry Harrington explains all on the Kickstarter video while giving a tour of this wonderful film theatre treasure in Kansas City, Missouri’s Westport area.  This is a truly community based film theatre. Please help save it by sharing the news with others who support independent film and businesses.

Thank you,

Eva

As many of you already know, our SAVE THE TIVOLI campaign launched just a few days ago. The response has been heartwarmingly overwhelming! We’re humbled, appreciative and grateful for your support….and for the kind comments you’ve been sharing your pledges.
Visiting SaveTheTivoli.com is the best way to learn why this happening and how our Kickstarter campaign works. It’s also an easy-to-remember web address that you can share with your friends and contacts.
For the latest news, please read our Kickstarter updates, or follow our posts on Facebook. You can also pick-up SAVE THE TIVOLI posters, buttons and postcards at the Donation Station in the Tivoli lobby, where you can also get answers to any questions you might have.

And, on behalf of all us at the Tivoli, thank you for your support

This is the only place in town to see films like Muscle Shoals and Othello and Wadja and Nosferatu and opera and dance and…  Yeah, you name it and Jerry Harrington brings it to town like none other. It was the only place to Fruitvale Station and Beasts of the Southern Wild. Without the Tivoli it will be more chain store multiplex wasteland for film folks who want more than brain-dead humor and gore galore from the film industry.

    An excellent post, Eva. I’m visiting them for sure. Our local independent theatres are REAL theatres/cinema.

      Hello WordsFallFromMyEyes!!!
      Hey thank you for sharing your opinion. Yes, the local independent theatres are REAL theatres. The Tivoli has made so many community connections that no chain ever would think of doing. There’s a great film series connected with the local university, there have been films as fundraisers, there are special screenings and talks for films that wouldn’t be shown anywhere else. And, believe it or not, you too can find Jerry in the theatre running the films and still willing to stop and chat about a film and just about anything else under the sun.
      Thanks for putting a penny in my yap yap yap slot.LOL. 🙂
