Every visit to the Ross Theatre has been wonderful, The selection of films continues to be stellar, the staff accommodating and the theatre clean. Would choose the Ross over a commercial theatre anytime!

Very thought provoking movies are brought to the big screen here. Sometimes there are even people who are involved with the movies that have Q & A sessions

Wonderful production of Macbeth from New York. Will go to these offering again soon. The opera was complete with subtitles which helps me greatly as I am a novice where opera is concerned. For what we saw, it was very reasonably priced, too.

Give it a try. Fantastic assortment of films to see. Something for everyone. Very comfortable theatre and fun location on campus of UNL. A gem for the City of Lincoln and our guests.
