The Food & Drinks
In addition to holding title to Joplin's only Independent Movie Theater, we're also proud to present a full bar and wide range of delicious foods that can be carried into the theater or enjoyed in the pub. We discourage interrupting a film for the sake of refreshments, so we ensure we're available to get these things for you with plenty of lead time before a picture is scheduled to begin.
We have decades of personal experience with a vegan diet and we have family history of gluten and corn allergies. Our kitchen staff is experienced and serve-safe certified and happy to accomodate food sensitivities. As everything we present is made to order and nothing ever has to thaw in house, we can work with your needs creatively. Please feel comfortable asking any questions you have.
If you procure an alcoholic beverage, please ensure that you keep good track of your drink throughout your visit.
Smoking & Vaping
We are huge advocates of vaping; however, it can interfere with a meal and it definitely interferes with projection. For this reason, we’re asking that smoking and vaping be done outdoors.
We are currently featuring oil paintings and photography from Joplin artist Lydia Humphreys. She is sharing a number of stunning works and is willing to produce prints if anyone would like to purchase them. She can be found on Facebook as Lydia Humphreys, instagram as Lydia_Humphreys or contacted via email at email@example.com.
We are on Langston Hughes Broadway & Historic Route 66 in Joplin, MO. Our little parcel of land is in the Joplin City section of town that preceeded the Joplin we have today. Currently, Easttown is undergoing a historical preservation survey that is slated to last for the next couple of years. This will help residents keep control of their properties and will help signify important places and events in history. Additionally, it is an effort to gather information about the history of both early Joplin and also the transformations the area has undergone as experienced by people living today. Easttown, where you can find us, has a very powerful history and today it is so full of life. Consequently, Easttown enfolds so much wisdom and courage and we are incredibly lucky and proud to be here. We encourage our patrons to learn something new about Easttown between their visits to our Cinema and to explore the other businesses along this stretch of road.
Since about October 25th of 2017, we have been working from scratch to cobble together our vision of a Cinema and Pub. We have done a lot of work and relied on a lot of fantastic people to meet industry, city, county, and state requirements for this kind of business. As I write this, I am positively looking forward to refocusing on the ongoing development of our programs, food, drinks, and screenings.
We currently have plans for developing events involving books, filmmakers, and courses for the kids. Our goals right now include solidifying those items as well as getting the patio viable before summer ends. Over time, we’re going to make announcements here and on facebook and instagram about any changes or additions we make.
We are enthusastic to have hosted the first meeting on this year's historical preservation grant awarded to the Easttown neighborhood and we look forward to playing whatever role we are needed for. The seccond meeting is planned here for July 31st.
We are happy to be home now to the FilmSpiva 48 Hour Film Competition and are looking forward to some collaboration with MSSU later in the year.
