Our Story:

On July 27, 2007, following a successful start-up capital campaign supported by individuals, families, foundations, and corporations throughout the Omaha area, we opened our two-screen home, the Ruth Sokolof Theater, within a North Downtown development anchored by music label Saddle Creek Records.

In our first decade of operations, we presented nearly 500 first-run American independents, international films, and documentaries and returned 800 classics to the big screen through our dedicated repertory program. We staged over 200 collaborative screenings with fellow nonprofits and community groups, hosted over 100 special screenings with visiting filmmakers and guest artists, and showed two-dozen silent films with live musical accompaniment. All the while, our Daytime Education Program grew exponentially, now serving thousands of students annually from schools and districts throughout the region.
