Ruth Sokolof Theater
The two-screen (160-seat and 83-seat) cinema we opened in 2007 within the Saddle Creek Records complex in North Downtown Omaha. Located one block west of TD Ameritrade Park and directly east of the Creighton University campus. Our neighbors include Slowdown, Zipline Brewing, The Trap Room, Hook & Lime, Rally Coffee Co., and the headquarters of Saddle Creek Records.
Movie showtimes begin late afternoon on Tuesday through Friday, and before noon on Saturday and Sunday. Our Box Office opens 30 minutes before the day's first showtime.
We are closed to the public on Mondays. All four of our screens at both locations will now be available for private theater rentals every Monday in 2023!
Free parking is available in the lot behind the Ruth Sokolof Theater, accessible from 14th Street between Cuming and Mike Fahey Streets. On-street, metered parking is also available in the area surrounding the cinema (free after 9 pm Monday through Saturday and all day Sunday).
Ample bicycle parking is available at any of several bike racks on our block. We are also conveniently located near a Heartland B-cycle station.
Discounted tickets ($9) are available for those traveling to the theater by bike or public transportation.

About Ruth Sokolof
Our cinema is named in loving memory of Ruth Sokolof (1925-1982), a passionate educator and longtime advocate for children with visual disabilities. Ruth and her husband, Phil Sokolof, left behind a legacy of generosity that continues today through their children and grandchildren.
