Kino Lorber has announced that 100% of all sales from the Abel Ferrara documentary “The Projectionist” will be donated to support local theaters. The film, produced by Washington Square Films, chronicles the life and career of Nicolas "Nick" Nicllaou, one of the last independent theater owners in New York. Indiewire calls the film "At once a walking tour of New York City’s evolving theatrical landscape, a history of moviegoing over the last 50 years, and a moving tribute to friendship, tenacity and movie love, ‘The Projectionist’ is an indelible tribute and timely paean to what going to the movies are all about.” Check out the article and trailer at @indiewire
