Bookhouse Cinema is the place to be for those who are desperately seeking artsy. Watch indie, foreign, and classic films at Joplin’s only independent theater. Linger after the movie with your friends in the gastropub, critiquing the film while you sip on beer and wine and dine on one of the many creative dishes like the Pulled Pork & Spinach Sandwich, Truffled Grapes, or the Vegan Falafel Shawarma.
Located on historic Route 66 in a century-old building, Bookhouse’s cozy theater features 40-plus reclining seats, a large digital screen, and a high-quality sound system. When the weather is warm, watch a movie on Bookhouse’s outdoor movie screen, the Patiodrome. Local art is also displayed and available for purchase.
