New Cinema Opens at Former AMC Location in Omaha’s Oak View Mall | Local business news
B&B Theaters, a movie theater chain, on Tuesday announced plans to expand into Nebraska by opening a 24-screen movie theater in the former AMC Oakview Plaza 24 building.
The AMC Theater near 144th Street and West Center Road closed in November 2020.
B&B Theaters said the new theater will have luxury power recliners and laser projectors in each auditorium. The theater will also have a bar that will serve drinks and hot food.
B&B Theaters did not say when the Omaha theater will open. The statement said more details on a timeline will be “rolled out in the coming weeks.”
B&B Theatres, which has 54 locations in 14 states, is privately owned and operated since 1924.

Superhero franchises never die; they keep restarting. “The Batman,” the latest reimagining of the Caped Crusader, stars Robert Pattinson in the title role, along with Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, Paul Dano as the Riddler and Colin Farrell in that of the penguin.
Now in theaters (limited release)
“Parallel Mothers,” directed by Pedro Almodovar, is technically a 2021 release, and you’ll definitely hear the buzz surrounding Oscar, especially for Penelope Cruz in the central role. She plays a new mother who bonds with a young woman she meets at the hospital where they both gave birth – but the story quickly takes a disturbing turn.
“Downton Abbey: A New Era”
Plot information on “Downton Abbey: A New Era” is rare, but it’s safe to assume it’s a new era at Downton Abbey (however, didn’t they say that in pretty much every episode?), that Lady Mary will say deliciously caustic things, that Carson will worry about these modern times, that Lady Edith will have a fit, and excellent hats will be worn.
‘The Lost City’
Based solely on the trailer of “The Lost City” I’m willing to say is possibly the most charming movie of all time, and I think we all need to see it immediately. Please let me not be mistaken. Sandra Bullock plays a romance novelist with a hot cover model (Channing Tatum). They end up kidnapped and in a jungle (in glitter!), and Daniel Radcliffe and Brad Pitt both show up.
“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”
The summer film season kicks off with the superhero saga “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” which you might know something about if you understood those post-credits sequences in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” Benedict Cumberbatch returns in the title role; Elizabeth Olsen, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor co-star.
Jordan Peele (“Get Out,” “Us”) likes to keep his cinematic storylines under wraps, so all we know at this point is that “Nope” is another horror flick from Peele’s creative mind. , that it will star Daniel Kaluuya (Oscar-nominated for “Get Out”), Keke Palmer and Steven Yuen, that it’s probably going to scare the hell out of us and get us talking, and that Peele likes movie titles with very few letters.
‘Mission: Impossible 7’
This is the third installment “M:I” from writer/director Christopher McQuarrie, and the first two – “Rogue Nation” and “Fallout” – were truly thrilling. Tom Cruise as super spy Ethan Hunt will once again perform death-defying feats; alongside him will be Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Vanessa Kirby and (new to the series) Esai Morales and Cary Elwes.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”
As hard as it is to imagine this franchise without Chadwick Boseman (who died of cancer in 2020), the new film “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will reunite director Ryan Coogler with original cast members Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya and Martin Freeman.
Maria Schrader, Emmy winner for Netflix series ‘Unorthodox,’ directs ‘She Said,’ a drama based on a true story about two New York Times reporters, played by Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan, who uncover evidence Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s long history of sexual misconduct. The cast includes Patricia Clarkson, Andre Braugher and Samantha Morton.
