CAT Schedule Changes Will Usher in Our New Community Media Center!

As I related in my last column, CAT, Columbia’s very own community media center, will be opening an additional location -- the CAT SAT(ellite) -- right downtown in early March 2012 at 23 N. 10th Street.

In order to make sure we have everything up and running as quickly as possible, AND so that we may collaborate with Columbia’s own True/False Film Fest, we will have to close our doors for a few days in early March.

Here’s our revised schedule for early March:

  • Thursday, March 1, through Saturday, March 3: CLOSED to work on the documentation crew for the True/False Film Fest
  • Sunday, March 4, through Monday, March 12: CLOSED for the move
  • Tuesday, March 13: CAT SAT(ellite) is open for business!

Don’t forget to join us on March 8 for a housewarming and sneak peek at the new CAT SAT -- meet at 7 p.m. at Ragtag Cinema to watch a quick highlight reel and then walk over to 23 N. 10th for snacks, bubbly and celebration!

We promise -- once we open our doors at the CAT SAT(ellite), you will be happy with all that you’ll be able to LEARN, GAIN ACCESS to, REACH OUT and SHARE through CAT!

CAT's New Downtown Media Center!

Big News! CAT is Columbia’s very own community media center, and now it will have an additional location right downtown, in The District. Starting in early March 2012, CAT will open its doors in a storefront at 23 N. 10th Street, on the block between Broadway and Ash streets.

You may recognize the space as having housed the first standalone Ragtag Cinema, another of Columbia’s media gems. The location is just steps away from the North Village Arts District, the Missouri Theater Center for the Arts, the University of Missouri, Columbia College and more.

The downtown location is not meant to replace CAT’s high-definition studios located on Stephens College campus. Instead, the media center headquarters will provide Columbia with a gateway to CAT’s studios and production space, adding value for all members of our community.  

CAT’s Studio A and Studio B will remain at Stephens, along with a conference room that CAT members may reserve and the offices for CAT’s production staff. CAT would like to thank Stephens College for its ongoing support, and we look forward to continuing this fruitful collaboration.

Watch for updates soon!
