This now-classic documentary about a loose knit clan of filmgoing obsessives in New York City celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2017 and, to mark the occasion, a special tour of a 35mm print is being arranged. The Brattle is excited to be the Boston area stop for this sometimes hilarious portrait of extreme cinephilia.
