“As a theater and as a brand, we strive to be the best entertainment experience imaginable for the Omaha metro. We do this by providing great food and drinks, exceptional presentation and a finely curated programming calendar,” says Derek Dillon, Alamo Drafthouse Omaha’s Creative Director. “On top of all of that, we’re also proud to be a great community partner for local non-profits, schools, and charities – whether it be celebrating teachers during Spring Break or collecting toy donations over the holidays. Our management team has renovated and created a very special place here, and we’re excited that Midtown Crossing has accepted us into their neighborhood.”
“Alamo Drafthouse Cinema combines everything we want in a retail partner: incredible energy, world-class customer experiences, and real community involvement. Its neighborhood ‘premiere’ is not only going to elevate Midtown Crossing, but it’s also going to accelerate the momentum we’re feeling throughout midtown Omaha,” said Molly Skold, Midtown Crossing’s Vice-President of Marketing and Communications.
