The RagTag Cinema is Columbia's spot for the alternative and indie films. While located downtown there is good parking close by in the city garage literally a stone's throw away. You enter through the Uprise Bakery, itself a excellent stop for coffee, sandwiches, other snacks and desserts. The theater itself is simple but comfortable with good viewing.

Like the idea that you can order a beer, tea and coffee to take into the movie. The seats are chairs and couches. They also have very different styles of shows. Like that it is down town also

Ragtag is the home spot for the True/False Film Festival. The have a number of films showing throughout the year--some that you would never find in a regular theater. They have comfortable seating, and offer drinks and food items for those seeking more than a bag of popcorn. It is easy to go there as a single or a couple... More

All the movies seen at Ragtag, a not-for-profit cinema are always memorable. The ambiance in the theatre, the ability to buy and have a beer or glass of wine while watching the movie, make this movie going experience SO much more enjoyable than just a commercial movie outing.

I love the dozy atmosphere at Ragtag, with its comfy couches and chairs. I enjoy taking a cup of good coffee or a glass of wine into the theater with me. The features appeal to a wide range of ages and interests. There is always one I want to see.

Ragtag provides varied options for viewing movies. Not only is the subject matter varied, but it's also possible to view those on weekday afternoons as well as evenings. Coupled with the fact that a cafe is also in this building, it's a great place to enjoy a sock or meal.

The Ragtag never fails to be a positive experience. Focusing on independent films and documentaries, it is the place to go for thoughtful and compelling films. The seating is intimate and very informal with couches and chairs of all varieties. Their larger theater has stadium seating to a degree and folding trays if you want to bring in food from... More

Finally went to Ragtag (after being badgered by colleagues to do so), to see Florence Foster Jenkins. Quirky little place, definite atmosphere. Worth a visit.
