About Tivoli at the Nelson-Atkins

Shortly after The Tivoli theater closed its doors in Westport, former theater owner Jerry Harrington approached the Nelson-Atkins with an innovative idea. With a little work, the museum’s beautiful and historic Atkins Auditorium could transform into an arthouse theater and become the new home for Tivoli Cinemas. Jerry himself would lend his film and audience expertise and curate a compelling programming plan.

Thanks to the visionary leadership of The Sunderland Foundation, Shirley and Barnett C. Helzberg, Jr., Neil D. Karbank, Estelle and Morton Sosland, G. Kenneth and Ann Baum, Evelyn Craft Belger and Dick Belger, Robert & Phyliss Bernstein Family Foundation, Donald J. Hall, Sara and Bill Morgan, and Mark and Lynne O’Connell Tivoli at the Nelson-Atkins was created.

Important Stuff

We will make every effort to stick to regular showtimes, however, the museum reserves the right to cancel or change showtimes that conflict with festivals, priority programming or pre-arranged event rentals. Please always check the website calendar for details.

There is no special pricing for children, students or seniors on Tivoli tickets. Discounted memberships for students and seniors are available onsite only.

Special events will be ticketed separately with additional cost.

Auditorium Rentals

Atkins Auditorium is available to rent for private events and film screenings. Contact Event Planning at events@nelson-atkins.org or view information.
