NYC's Metrograph Arthouse Theater/Bookstore Opens

Shelf Awareness

Metrograph, the arthouse cinema on New York City's Lower East Side that opens today, includes a balcony-level bookshop "for literary moviegoers. Patrons are welcome to peruse a distinctive selection of printed matter centered on moving pictures, from rare first-edition biographies of iconic directors to the latest issues of today's most important film journals."

Metrograph's founder and film director Alexander Olch (The Windmill Movie) told Time Out New York: "The dream is to make a place that is very special for cinema, which is slightly different than just building a cinema. It's a place that you would come to that speaks to the world of cinema but serves your purposes beyond seeing a movie. It's a place you'd want to hang out."
