The Dundee Theater

Air Date: 04/11/2019

The Dundee Theater is the cornerstone of Omaha’s historic Dundee district.  The Dundee neighborhood is also home to Warren Buffett and the childhood home of Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alexander Payne.  The neighborhood theater opened in the 1925 and is the last of its kind in Omaha.  The theater closed in 2013 and sat dormant until 2017, when Susie Buffett’s Sherwood Foundation restored the building as a gift to Omaha’s Film Streams.  The once classic cinema has a renewed urban community design.  Today, Film Streams’ Dundee Theater is a fitting place to appreciate international and locally crafted films as an art form.
