How We Became "Best of Omaha"

We are so excited we are finally able to share the news we were voted Best Movie Theatre for Omaha Magazine's Best of Omaha 2013!  There actually wasn't a "Best Movie Theatre" category, so I called them to see if we could have it added before voting started.  They were so great and added the category that day!  We greatly appreciate all of our customers that took their time to vote.  We certainly wouldn't be where we are today without all of you!

We just had our 2-year anniversary on December 10th, and what an amazing 2 years it has been! 

We have raised over $23,000 this year for local charities including Angels Among Us, Youth Emergency Services, Together, Open Door Mission, Cystic Fibrosis, Hope Center for Kids, and the Anti-Defamation League Plains States. 

We hosted events ranging from Bicycle Dreams, Shakespeare Film Festival, Red Tails event with some original Tuskegee Airmen as part of Martin Luther King Jr. week, various ADL screenings, lots of birthday parties for kids and adults, Girls Night Out, PerfectMatch premiere, Anti-Hunger Summit, a wedding (our first), Urban Adventure Race kick off, Derby Baby!, Green Omaha Coalition event, Omaha Conservatory of Music Gala, a rehearsal dinner, Creighton Men's Basketball viewing parties, live music with Chris Saub, and more!

Here are some of our favorite pictures from the year!
