The Tivoli shows art films and independent films. If you're open to seeing something new and fresh, the Tivoli is always a safe bet. The people who attend the movies actually pay attention--there isn't talking or cell-phone ringing like at bigger chain theatres. The seats are comfortable, and I've found the concessions to actually be FRESH, unlike the chain theatres. Bottom line: Kansas City is incredibly lucky to have this movie theatre!
This theater is located inside the Manor Square Mall--the best way to find the theatre is to park in the public lot off of Pennsylvania Street, and enter the office building from the lot. The theatre is in the building.
Pros: Good atmosphere, Great movie selection, Grown-up patrons
