I'm not going to review the theater based solely on the fact they show art/independent films - that's a lot like giving a grocery store a great review because they sell groceries. This is meant to be an art house theater. The aesthetics of the lobby are great - very cool entryway and a bit about the history of their... More

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...

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!

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... More

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.

We saw "Nebraska" there after Thanksgiving dinner. What a great little gem of a place here in Omaha. Seemed fitting to see Alexander Payne's latest movie there, (which was awesome, you got robbed at the Golden Globes Mr. Payne!) If you are local or visiting what a great venue to see a movie.

I've never been disappointed in this theater or their selection of films and events. My last visit there was a Met Opera in HD (Falstaff). Wonderful!!

What a great little gem of a theatre!!! This independent movie house is terrific! Tickets are well priced ($9 for a recent showing of "Nebraska"), snacks are tasty, and the screen/seating area are well laid out. We saw a late afternoon show and it was nearly empty. I hope a lot of people go to Film Streams and support it... More

We are so fortunate to have a locally owned theatre such as FilmStreams. Excellent selection and variety of movies....members pay a mere $4.50 for a movie! Often they host a panel of speakers for discussion after movies. Perfection.
