If a midnight movie were personified, he would probably steal matinee's lunch money and spend it all on Milk Duds, laser pointers, and party poppers. Wear your funglasses at night with today's deal: for $6, you get two tickets to a midnight show at Dundee Theatre, Omaha's last single-screen theatre, on Dodge Street. Catch anything from cult classics to contemporary indie flicks, all scheduled late on Friday and Saturday nights.
Celebrate the culture of midnight movies with fellow audience members, and indulge in genuine admiration for the rambunctious action both onscreen and off. While talking is allowed at some shows (as indicated by a sign at the box office), a lot of hard work goes into each night, so there are still a few house rules the theatre kindly asks patrons to respect. The midnight lineup is constantly changing, but upcoming offerings include an eclectic mix of new and old favorites. Witness the spectacle that has amassed a massive cult following with The Rocky Horror Picture Show on July 2, or find a use for your spare spoon collection during the modern cult classic The Room on July 3. If you're looking for some new party-prank ideas, check out The Human Centipede, playing June 18–19, or give yourself a trip through time, space, and Muppetry during Labyrinth, playing July 16–17.
Staying true to its vaudeville roots, Dundee Theatre provides an eclectic lineup of midnight screenings that are seemingly unrelated, yet entirely rewarding. The historic theatre comes complete with modern add-ons like a world-class sound system and non-outhouse restrooms. With no purchase limit to today's deal, feel free to tour the cinematic landscape as often as you please over the next six months. Use each Groupon's secondary ticket to treat an adventurous pal, because nothing says friendship like collectively igniting a slow-clap.

Since 1925, the Dundee Theatre’s gold curtains have been parting for generations of rapt audiences. Originally a vaudeville theater, the venue was transformed into a movie house during the Great Depression as a cost-cutting measure. For the next half century it traded hands, sometimes screening art films, sometimes featuring family fare, and once showing a 118-week run of The Sound of Music, which was eventually halted by a town statute banning raindrops on roses.
In 1980, current owner Denny Moran stepped in and renovated the theater to recapture some of the splendor of its early days. The old vaudevillian stage and dressing rooms still lurk behind the silver screen, counterbalanced by a state-of-the-art Dolby Digital EX sound system and Cyrano de Bergerac smell system. Under Moran's watch, the Dundee Theatre now screens an eclectic mix of art and independent films, cinema classics, and cult favorites.
