Cutting Room for January 19

I’m not trying to tell you how to live your life. Well, at least not all of it. I just want to tell you how to live your life on a few specific days. So grab a pen and get to stuffin’ your schedule.

  • By now you’re all kinds of aware that the Omaha Film Festival (omahafilmfestival.org) runs March 2-6 at the Great Escape Stadium 16 Theatre, right? That’s cool, but why wait for March when the party starts Feb 5, from 6-10 p.m. at the North Sea Films Building, 2626 Harney St. The OFF’11 Release Party will kick the shindig off right, with no admission fee and plenty of passes, posters and T-shirts. And just like in a rap video, after the party there’s another party. Then Feb. 27, from 6-11 p.m. at the Nomad Lounge, 1013 Jones St., the OFF’scar Party is the best way to watch Hollywood give itself a high-five. See, like I said, feel free to write this stuff on your calendar in ink.

  • This next one is a bit sudden, but I believe there’s a rule about offers and refusals that’s going to spring to mind. Film Streams at the Ruth Sokolof Theatre (filmstreams.org) is finally showing The Godfather. The winner of the annual “Film Streams Members Select” vote this year, the classic will screen Saturday, Jan. 22, at 3 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 23, at 3 p.m. and Thursday, Jan. 27, at 8:30 p.m. And the first screening is free for Film Streams Members! Even if you’ve seen it before, if you haven’t seen it on the big screen, well let’s just say the experience is still more shocking than equine decapitation.
