Overnight, Alamo Drafthouse Omaha announced the theater’s closure due to the impact of COVID-19. In 2019, the theater opens in downtown Omaha. Prior to that, the facility was a 2009-opening Marcus Theatres site.

Although the Omaha branch has closed, the business still operates a nearby site in La Vista.

In addition, the Alamo Drafthouse is not the only Omaha movie theater to close recently.

Omaha’s Westwood Cinemas 8 closed in April after 30 years of film exhibition.
