The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema - Midtown in Omaha, Nebraska is opening to the public Thursday, March 7, 2019, according to the theater's web site. To get the staff ready for the big opening, the theater will be open for select shows Friday, March 1 through Wednesday, March 6, with special discounts and programming.

Moviegoers can see movies like Oscar-nominated The Favourite, Mission: Impossible - Fallout, and Avengers: Infinity War (see the full list below) during the soft opening event and enjoy 25% discounts on food and (non-alcoholic) beverages. Guests are welcome to add monetary donations to their tickets, which will be donated to the Omaha Public Library.

Tickets are first-come first-serve, so be sure to reserve your seats today by going to the Showtimes page for the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema - Midtown and buy your tickets now!

Alamo's web site says that the theater has been transformed, and mentions the new luxury recliner seats in all five auditoriums as one example of the improvements they made. They have a full-service bar and kitchen, in-theater dining, specialty programming series, and their infamous no-talking, no-texting policy.

The theater is intended for adults and children over six years of age with a parent or legal guardian. No one under six will be admitted.

The theater originally opened in 2009 as the Marcus Midtown Cinema, which closed in May 2018.

When it opens, it will be competing with the Film Streams at Ruth Sokolof Theater, Dundee Theatre, and the Main Street Theatres - Aksarben Cinema, as well as the AMC Star Council Bluffs 17 and Regal Omaha Stadium 16. All are within about five miles of the Midtown location, and looking a little further out results in even more from which to choose.

The company currently operates the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema - La Vista near the I-80 and Giles Road interchange, about ten miles southwest of Midtown Crossing.
