SPRINGFIELD, MO — Locals can rejoice as the Moxie Cinema is saved by a non-profit group that was established to buy the theatre and make sure it’s business as usual there.

Springfield will retain its only independent movie theater – The Moxie Cinema – through the creation of the non-profit Downtown Springfield Community Cinema Fund administered by a volunteer board through the Community Foundation of the Ozarks.

No significant changes are planned for the Moxie’s operations under the new ownership. The Chiltons will serve as consultants through the end of August and plan to continue supporting the new venture informally after that.
