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 beautiful 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.
  • CLASSICS: Repertory 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 ENGAGEMENT: 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.
Interesting Info
