If you go to a movie theater often enough, you’ll begin to recognize “the regulars” - local film buffs whose lives revolve around screenings. And if you’ve been to the movies in New York City, you’ve probably crossed paths with Jack, Eric, Bill, Roberta or Harvey - the five obsessive filmgoers profiled here. This irresistible and hilarious cult documentary is sure to strike a chord whether you’re a cinemaniac yourself or merely curious about that familiar face sitting in the next row. "A breezy study of movie love at its most dementedly committed." - The Village Voice

Winner of the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Masterful Storytelling at Sundance 2017.
