“Film Stream Cinema”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Film Stream is just about the only theater in Omaha you can see independent films. They sometimes make it to the bigger ones but honestly not very often. It is located in North Downtown aka NODO (North of the Old Market) and has a lot within walking distance including the TD Ameritrade Ballpark and Urban Outfitters, Pizza Places, concert venues and Froyo. There really is a lot in this little area and kind of a hidden gem for Omaha. The theater is completely funded by donations and is a non-profit organization. They try to keep prices affordable and considering it is relatively new it is very nice on the inside. They have a variety of films from foreign to local and have great specials and events throughout the month.

“Our favorite theatre in Omaha”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

We go to Film Streams so often when in Omaha. They always have great movies that don't show in those other theaters catering to 3D, monster/fantasy, beat'em up etc (you have the idea). Was so excited to see the film Nebraska here - like the movie, this theatre is the epitome of this great state!

“Great Movie Scene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you love movies and the artistic side of movies, you will love Film Streams. They have many rare movies and most every independent. You can watch many movies that do not come to big box theaters. It never seems to be overly busy and you can always find a good seat. There is a real community feeling there. Many staff are volunteers, they have local beers, local teas, excellent popcorn and lots of fun snacks. Did I mention beer or wine while you watch a movie? The crowd is very relaxed and not ultra rowdy like many chain theaters with kids running around all over and screaming during the movie. Great place to truly appreciate the art of movie. Prices are reasonable too.

“something for everybody”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Truly a great find for film buffs. Film Streams presents a wide variety of new release and classic films that are often overlooked or in limited release. Comfortable seating and friendly staff. Close to other downtown Omaha restaurants and bars so its convenient for 'dinner and a movie'. Check out their website for current schedule, as it changes often.

Two small theaters in downtown Omaha. Within walking distance of the CenturyLink Center and several of the downtown hotels.
