Today Film Streams is incredibly excited to announce that the Dundee Theater is on schedule to open in time for the Omaha premiere of Alexander Payne’s DOWNSIZING next month.
A social satire set in a world where miniaturization has been discovered as a scientific solution to overpopulation, DOWNSIZING opens nationwide on Friday, December 22. Early shows will begin at the Dundee Theater on December 21.
In appreciation for their support, Film Streams Members and Dundee Theater Campaign contributors will soon receive more information about early on-sale dates and even more special opportunities. (Not a Film Streams Member yet? Now’s a great time to join.)
From the beginning of our Dundee Theater project, we have been hopeful that Film Streams’ reopening of the historic cinema would coincide with the latest release from Alexander Payne — an active and enthusiastic board member since our nonprofit’s earliest days.
Like so many Omahans, his own passion for the Dundee Theater has been built up over decades of movie-going experiences there. We’re thrilled that his newest, most ambitious film will serve as a truly grand reopening of the Dundee — its run starting almost 92 years to the day after the theater originally opened its doors in 1925.
We look forward to sharing more news about the Dundee soon, including the possibility of programming to take place at the theater even earlier in December.
In the meantime, our immense gratitude to all who have supported our project to bring back the Dundee and to the many partners and vendors who have contributed to its timely return to Omaha.
See you soon at the Dundee Theater!
