This documentary portrait of theater operator Nicolas “Nick” Nicolaou moves from 1970s
Times Square adult film houses through decades of city regulation, chain takeovers, and
cultural shifts, charting a charming odyssey through the history of film exhibition and New York
City. Abel Ferrara traces the life and work of friend and fellow cinephile 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 the love of cinema, The Projectionist
is also a timely paean to what going to the movies is all about.
