Missouri Theatre

On the National Register of Historic Places, Missouri Theatre is central Missouri's only remaining pre-depression era movie palace and vaudeville stage. Built in 1928, the theatre's interior is an ornate baroque and rococo style of the Louis XIV and XV periods. Designed by the Boller Brothers Architects of Kansas City, the theatre is modeled after the Paris Opera House. Much of the original detailing survives, including the Belgian marble wainscoting, plaster reliefs, stained glass art panels under the balcony, and an 1,800-pound Italian chandelier featuring crystal prisms and etched panels.

It was a great event. I never knew and met Monica Hand and Nina Simone but the words and music shared last night, I met them and got to know Monica Hand. Monica Hand, for her hands, touched lives, her voice and words were melodies that moved the lives she touched. I wish I had known her but last night I felt her presence which brought teary eyes, yes I almost cried because even though I never knew nor met her, she touched my life. Her work shared by the people who knew and met her touched my heart. Monica Hand, I never knew you but now I do.

I just love, love, love Meshell, and I see the Mizzou Jazz Orchestra does also. It was a wonderful tribute to her music and originality! Thank you for making the performance possible!

His presentation was wonderful. I especially liked his focus on leadership, and how few leaders we have in government today.

Wow! This was really a great event. The films were spectacular and I enjoyed the panel discussions afterwards. There was a nice spread on international food and even live music in the lobby. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.

It was excellent with a huge turnout. Each film had a different topic to offer and the international food was free and amazing.
