In the last eight years, the Moxie has brought roughly 800 films to town. Almost all of these would otherwise have never screened in Springfield. Since becoming a non-profit in 2010, we have often partnered with local organizations such as OPT (Ozarks Public Television), Sister Cities and the NAACP on special screenings and events. We offer education programs for children and families, often at no cost to participants. Moxie members make it all possible.
Please consider becoming a member today.
Do I have to be a member to see movies?
Why is the Moxie a non-profit?
Changing our tax status allowed us to apply for grants, accept tax deductible donations and partner with a wider range of community organizations such as the Library and Sister Cities.
What “cause” is it supporting?
Great cinema in Springfield! We screen independent and foreign films that otherwise would never come to town, support local filmmakers, provide innovative kids programs, and host movie series that explore the history of film from silent era classics to “The Shining.”
I already pay for tickets. Why should I join?
First off, thank you! Keep coming to see movies. However, 35 to 60% of the money from each ticket goes back to the studios. Over the last year, we paid around $70,000 to “rent” films. The proceeds from ticket and concession sales alone cannot support our operations. Besides, as a “Family” member (or higher) your popcorn is free.
Any other perks?
Yes! All members get free admission to any “repertory” screenings, meaning any special screening that is not a first-run title. For each showing, individual members get one free ticket. Family members (and higher) get two.
So how can I donate?
We have five membership levels. The tax deductible portion of your donation is shown in brackets.
- Students ($50): $6 ticket price (for one person); 50 cent popcorn [$50]
- Individual ($100): $6 ticket price (for one person); 50 cent popcorn [$100]
- Family ($250): 10 free tickets, $6 ticket price (for two); free popcorn [$190]
- Producer ($500): 20 free tickets; $6 ticket price (for two); free popcorn [$380]
- Director ($1,000): 50 free tickets; $6 ticket price (for two); free popcorn [$700]
Checks should be made out to the Moxie Cinema Fund and sent to the Community Foundation of the Ozarks at P.O. Box 8960, Springfield, MO, 65801.
Donors also can give online at the Foundation’s website. Please note that your donation is for Moxie membership in the fund/program box.
We look forward to bringing you fabulous films for years to come!
— Mike Stevens, Executive Director
