For those of you who were on our last TEDxOmaha Adventure, and explored behind the scenes at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater, you will remember that we promised a sequel to the performance. At the time, the Dundee Theater was being renovated, but no more. Now refurbished the Dundee is back, and Film Streams has kindly agreed show us around on Saturday 10th March. “Dundee: The Director’s Cut” will find the TEDxOmaha Adventures exploring another step of the journey exploring the world of independent film, and getting to go behind the scenes at the newly reimagined space and second venue for Film Streams. Our host for the day Casey Logan, the Deputy Director for Film Streams, will guide us around Omaha’s oldest surviving cinema. Once again, we will explore behind the scenes, and share the journey, gain insight as we experience the world of independent film and classics programming through the eyes those who work there.
