Often simply called as the Missouri Theatre, the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts is a 1216-seater pre-Depression era entertainment venue. It was constructed in 1928, fashioned after the French Opera Garnier in Paris. It was designed by the Boller Brothers in the Louis XIV and XV styles of architecture. It is the last movie place that was from its time in Columbia, Missouri.
The Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts initially opened in 1928 amidst wide excitement. However, the site became difficult to maintain due to its size, so it was leased and then used as a movie place from 1953 to 1983.
Today, the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts is not just home for films, but is also a venue for other cultural events. It is the home of the Missouri Symphony Orchestra and the Hot Summer Nights Music Festival.
