What We Do

Film Streams is dedicated to enhancing the cultural environment of the Omaha-Council Bluffs area through the presentation and discussion of film as an art form.

Our organization oversees two wonderful and distinct cinemas: the Ruth Sokolof Theater, the two-screen venue we opened in 2007 within the Saddle Creek Records complex in North Downtown Omaha, and the historic Dundee Theater, Omaha’s longest surviving neighborhood cinema.

Open seven days a week, our two cinemas host a variety of programs within five principal areas:

NEW RELEASES: New American independents, documentaries, and international films making their theatrical premieres in Omaha and the surrounding region.

REPERTORY SELECTIONS: Classic films, themed series, director retrospectives, and revivals celebrating the history and cultural spectrum of film as art, presented with the highest quality 35mm prints and DCP restorations available.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT: Collaborative screenings with other nonprofit organizations, using film as a catalyst for important conversations about our community and the world around us.

EDUCATION: Year-round film-education opportunities for all ages, including a Daytime Education Program in which teachers bring their classes to our cinema(s) for field-trip screenings and discussions, and Courses, a public program of multi-film seminars for adult audiences.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS: Q&As with visiting filmmakers, live musical performances to silent classics, an annual Local Filmmakers Showcase, and other special events complementing each of the aforementioned areas.
