The film traces the life and work of friend and fellow cinephile Nicolas “Nick” Nicolaou, a Cypriot immigrant who began working as a teenager in small neighborhood movie theaters around Manhattan. He defied gentrification, changing viewing habits and corporate dominance in the 1980’s, and emerged decades later as one of New York City’s last independent theater owners.
