Heart Beat

The Projectionist

Abel Ferrara

The director traces the life and work of friend and fellow cinephile Nicolas “Nick” Nicolaou, a Cypriot immigrant who began working as a teenager in small neighbourhood movie theatres around Manhattan, defying gentrification and changing viewing habits in the 1980s, only to emerge decades later as one of New York City’s last independent theatre owners. A moving tribute to friendship, tenacity and movie love.
