I’m going to hope that I’m the first person to notice Rem Koolhaas’ last name sounds like “cool house” … because I want to be considered clever. See, he’s a world-renowned architect (get it, “cool house”), and Film Streams Ruth Sokolof Theater (filmstreams.org) is screening two documentaries about him. A Kind of Architect and Koolhaas Houselife explore the Danish sensation, as will a discussion with Design Alliance Omaha and the Omaha Creative Institute that will also be held Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. After hearing this, I’m considering changing my name to Ryan Ryetscool. It’s time to get yo learn on, as famed film and television producer Howard Rosenman will hold a seminar Saturday, Nov. 6, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2-5 p.m., in the CPACS Building on the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) campus, in conjunction with the UNO Department of Theatre and Omaha Film Festival. This inside look at producing, called “The Hollywood Sell,” will be preceded November 4, at 7 p.m. at the Great Escape Omaha Stadium 16 Theatre by a screening of Father of the Bride , which Rosenman produced. Seminar tickets are $75 for the general public, $25 for students and free for dudes whose last names rhyme with Blear-ick. No? Well, it was worth a try. For more information and tickets, hit up thehollywoodsell.com. Good news and bad news Goonie -philes. Bad news: There’s probably not a sequel coming to the film “classic” — the quotation marks are because I never liked it … sorry. The good news: There may be a stage musical. For realz. I can’t wait to see Andrew Lloyd Weber’s “Truffle Shuffle.” Cutting Room provides breaking local and national movie news … complete with added sarcasm.
