Film Streams' Dundee Theater

CLIENT: Film Streams
LOCATION: Omaha, NE
ARCHITECT: Alley Poyner Macchietto

Film Streams purchased the 92-year-old theater and expanded into the space formerly occupied by Old Dundee Bar and Grill, making room for a larger lobby and a restaurant, a bookstore and a micro-cinema: a 25-seat auditorium that will be used as a theater and classroom. The main theater contains over 300 seats.

The outside of the Dundee received a new vertical marquee and the Dodge Street entrance was completely redone with a windowed facade and stone facing. The new north-side main entrance opens into a landscaped patio area.

Careful coordination was done with neighboring business and homeowners and with the city of Omaha for brief shutdowns of Omaha’s busiest street.
