Bookhouse Cinema (2018)

The only independent movie theatre in Joplin, Bookhouse Cinema opened in 2018 but has already developed deep roots in the community. Bookhouse’s historic location, its contributions to revitalizing Joplin’s East Town, and its partnerships with organizations like Spiva Center for the Arts and Missouri Southern State University have made it the latest cultural hub. Patrons can catch new and classic indie flicks while enjoying a wide variety of drinks and fresh, made to order dishes from Bookhouse’s pub.
