Post by dangerboy »

The Englewood Theater in Independence is open again after an extensive renovation. The article makes it found great. I sure missed the annual Raiders of the Lost Ark and 2001 a Space Odyssey showings.

Englewood Arts Aims to Revitalize Historic Independent Neighborhood with New Arts Center, Affordable Housing and More
As high rents continue to squeeze artists in areas such as the Crossroads Arts District, an historic Independence enclave aims to establish itself as an affordable arts magnet.

Englewood Arts, a nonprofit organization launched in August, recently purchased the former Comprehensive Mental Health Services building at 10901 East Winner Road in Independence. Now renamed the Englewood Arts Center, the three-story building looks out on the historic Englewood Station Arts District.
...
Plans for the new Englewood Arts Center include glass blowing, painting, murals, ceramics, wood, neon, performing arts and culinary arts. Englewood Arts hopes to open portions of the new arts center before the end of this year. The organization has launched a campaign to raise $2 million to renovate and equip the building and create a reserve fund for three years of operations, Baxley said.
...
Meantime, Short would like to see Englewood Arts eventually acquire the old Englewood Theatre.

“A lot of people who grew up in this area went to the Englewood Theatre,” he said. “We would like to have some of the older films come back. Probably some art-related films. We want to put a stage back in, so there can be some performing arts there. We’d like to upgrade it.”

This is cool, independence has a solid downtown stock, ideally way down the line a streetcar could run down Truman and connect the two. Although blue summit would be a major headache
