Ragtag Cinema

10 Hitt St
Columbia, MO 65201



With cinema as a focal point, Ragtag Film Society exists to captivate and engage communities in immersive arts experiences that explore assumptions and elicit shared joy, wonder, and introspection.

Our two programs include Ragtag Cinema, a year-round, two-screen theater that shows multiple screenings of new independent arthouse releases and archival films to hundreds of patrons daily, and the annual True/False Film Fest, a four-day, nine-screen immersive multimedia event that brings together nonfiction filmmakers, artists, musicians, and audiences for a unique, creative experience in Columbia, Missouri. New this year, in response to the pandemic, Ragtag has added two inflatable screens, 20ft and 40ft, which make it possible to safely offer outdoor screenings in the form of walk-up or drive-in options for audiences up to 150 individuals or approximately 100 cars (per current city health guidelines) Additionally, RFS is focused on improving media literacy throughout Columbia by implementing programs for school-aged students, teachers, and residents of mid-Missouri.
