Photo by Marcus TheatresThe Marcus Midtown Cinema in Omaha, Nebraska closed after the last movie played on Sunday, May 13, 2018. A message posted Sunday on the theater's Facebook page announced the theater's closure:

The owner of Midtown Cinema is ending the Marcus management agreement. As such Midtown Cinema is closing. Our theatre’s last day of business is today, May 13.

The theater was opened by Marcus Theatres Corporation in November 2009.

The good news for moviegoers in the area is that Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas will be moving into the space, and the theater is expected to reopen later this year. According to a press release from the company, they will be renovating the five-screen theater that will include new signage, reclining seats, a "Liquid Sunshine Taproom" bar, a first-floor box office, and more.

The company currently operates the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema - La Vista near the I-80 and Giles Road interchange, about five miles southwest of Midtown Crossing. The press release also mentioned that they will be taking over the Monday Night Movies in Turner Park starting this summer, starting on June 4, 2018.

We've renamed the theater Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas - Midtown for now, and will update it if necessary. Until the theater reopens, moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Dundee Theatre and the Main Street Theatres - Aksarben Cinema. If you have Marcus gift cards to use, the closest locations are the Marcus Twin Creek Cinema in Bellevue and the Marcus Majestic Cinema of Omaha on 144th & West Maple Road.
