Film Streams is a 501(c)3 nonprofit working to enhance the cultural environment of the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan 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.
American independents, documentaries, and foreign films making their theatrical premieres in Omaha and the surrounding region.
Classic films, themed series, director retrospectives, and revivals celebrating the history and cultural spectrum of the art of film, presented with the highest quality 35mm prints and DCP restorations available.
Arts in Education
Year-round opportunities for students to engage with film as an art form, including Daytime Education Screenings for visiting classes and a monthly Student Night the first Monday of every month when any regularly scheduled program is free with valid school ID.
Collaborative screenings and discussions with other nonprofits in the Omaha area, using film as a springboard for important conversations about the world at large and our community in particular.
Q&As with visiting filmmakers, live musical performances to silent classics, an annual Local Filmmakers Showcase celebrating the work of area artists, and other special events complementing each of the aforementioned areas.
"The community involvement is a great plus, and I especially love the support Film Streams gives to local filmmakers. I appreciate that with the membership, the cost is low enough to make it a regular thing." - Film Streams Member Paul Allen
"[My daughter] really enjoyed the CITIZEN KANE viewing yesterday… I admitted to her that I had not seen CITIZEN KANE and now she is insisting that I see it so we can talk about it - so not only did you provide her with an educational opportunity but you're facilitating continuing interaction. Thanks for doing all that you do." - parent of Central High School student
