The Movie House on Main Street
About The Film
Rosendale is a small town in upstate New York with a population of 5,900. In 2009, the town's single screen movie theatre was slated to close after 60 years in business on Main Street. The family-owned theatre was struggling to make ends meet and faced a required conversion to a new digital projection system that would put the family out of business. The Movie House on Main Street is a documentary about the story of the Rosendale Theatre and the story of many small screen movie theaters across the United States that have closed due to an inability to sustain financially.
