Alexander Payne screened his latest film "Downsizing" starring Matt Damon, Hong Chau, and Kristen Wiig at the Dundee Theater Friday night. 

The film was partially shot in Omaha, where Payne is from. 

"It's so exciting I can't quite wrap my brain around it," he said, explaining that excitement came from being a Films Streams board member but also a lifelong Dundee resident. 

"I walked over here as I did when I was a kid, I thought it was only appropriate," he said. 

"Lindsey Theis spoke with Payne about the iconic neighborhood theater. Watch that after you watch her story about how much of Omaha is featured in the new feature film.
