Hollywood tends to give all the credit to the newest film technology, especially with all of the new 3-D movies coming out.
But sometimes it’s the classics. The old times films that capture our hearts and our imagination.
The Lake Online tipped us off to a gem in nearby Stover, Missouri — The Osage Theater. If you’re tired of the summer heat and are looking to relax for a bit, watching an old film is just the ticket.
Every week offers something different. Friday is western night where you might see a film with Roy Rogers or The Lone Ranger. On Saturday’s classic comedies with Carry Grant and Gene Arthur might be shown.
Showtimes are Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. Admission is $2. A small concession stand is available.
This restored theater was brought back to life by owners Joseph and Susan Ryan. The theater was built in the 1920s and was used as a theater from the 1940s until the 1970s. The lineup always changes, but they show everything from classic comedies, old cartoons, and even a Western night every Friday.
The Osage Theater is located at 308 West Second Street, Stover, Missouri. It’s 2 blocks South of Hwy. 52, a 35- minute drive from Eldon. For more information, call 573-377-2136.
