In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the movies on screen.

With keen insight and finely-tuned comedy, THE FLICK is
a hilarious and heartrending cry for authenticity in a changing world.

“Funny, heartbreaking, sly, and unblinking. THE FLICK may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity, and profound uniqueness, of theater.” – New York Magazine
