CALLICOON, NY — The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and the Callicoon Theater will present the Oscar-nominated film “Nebraska,” starring Bruce Dern starting Friday, January 31.

An aging, alcoholic father (Dern) makes the trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son (Will Forte) in order to claim a million-dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize. Their road trip gets waylaid at a small town in Nebraska, where the father grew up and has scores to settle. Told with deadpan humor and a unique visual style, “Nebraska” tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.

“Nebraska” is nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Bruce Dern), Best Supporting Actress (June Squibb), Best Cinematography, Best Directing, and Best Original Screenplay.

Nebraska is rated R and will screen Friday, January 31 to Thursday, February 6, nightly at 7:30 p.m., with matinees at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission costs $10 ($8 admission on Mondays and matinees) and $7 for children under 12 at all shows.
