Netflix Killed Kansas City Tivoli Cinemas



The reality is the "Netflix and Chill" sounds much more enticing (and cheaper) than "dinner & a movie" . . . Even if both risk a sexual assault allegation.

Nevertheless, here's the postscript on the last night of a Kansas City cinematic institution from the local news:

KSHB: Independent movie theater focuses on variety to keep the lights on

KMBC: Independent movie theaters battle with streaming services for audiences

KCTV5: Locals say farewell to the Tivoli in Westport

Independent has always been a tough business. Especially now with hostile local governments constantly working to force you out of business to make way for some idiotic corporate chain.
