You can watch the film accompanied by your meal in any of the two theaters. One of the theaters has small tray that folds... More

The Ragtag has a great history in Columbia, from its humble beginnings with 'ragtag' seating to its current cinemas. Great films, fun introductions and you even get to have food and beverage while you enjoy! Truly a fabulous venue.

There are two theaters inside; a "big" theater whose seats have little arm-rest tables where you can place a pint of beer, a glass of wine, or a sandwich purchased from the Uprise Bakery inside the same building. The small theater has a wacky mix... More

My wife and I enjoy traveling the 30 miles one way from Jefferson City to Columbia to enjoy a great movie in a half like home, half like school decor. The half like home portion of the theater pertains to the numerous couches and overstuffed chairs in the front area. The half like school portion pertains to the raised rows... More

Fun little theater with comfy home style seating...imagine a big family room with couches, etc. Good documentaries and films you probably won't see elsewhere.

Ragtag is eclectic and has great films. You can get food and drinks(real drinks) and sit in couches. They get some of the most critically acclaimed movies and the best in independent films. I highly recommend you try it if in Columbia.

Quite an appreciable venture this one. A cozy little theatre with a good indie movies year round. The bar is decent, but the 5$ tickets are the best. The recent renovation have made the seats better.
