NORFOLK, Neb. — Norfolk will get a special showing of Alexander Payne's new movie.

A showing of “Nebraska,” which was mostly shot in northeast Nebraska, is tentatively planned for Nov. 25 at the Norfolk 7 movie theater, the Norfolk Area Visitors Bureau's advisory board was told Tuesday.

Payne and a few of the stars from the film are expected to attend the Norfolk showing. A large sign used in the movie, from the fictional town of Hawthorne, will be displayed along with other movie artifacts.

The movie will premiere in Omaha Nov. 22 at Film Streams' Ruth Sokolof Theater. On Nov. 24, Payne will be interviewed at Film Streams' annual fundraiser, along with Bruce Dern and Will Forte, who star in the new movie.

The movie had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
