Cast & Crew


Abel Ferrara


Director Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, King of New York) 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, defying gentrification, changing viewing habits and corporate dominance in the 1980s, only to emerge decades later as one of New York City’s last independent theater owners. A moving tribute to friendship, tenacity and movie love, The Projectionist is also a timely paean to what going to the movies is all about.
