This film was last shown on 24 June 2023

In the shadow of the pandemic, a small town rallies to protect a beloved local bookstore. A landmark in Lenox, Massachusetts, The Bookstore is a magical, beatnik gem thanks to its owner Matt Tannenbaum, whose passion for stories runs deep. This intimate portrait of The Bookstore and the family at its heart offers a journey through good times, hard times, and the stories hidden on the shelves.

“Richly moving and almost transcendental. A salute to the sacramental qualities of art that are threaded through everyday life.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“A tribute to the love of reading and the pleasures of a smartly stocked bookstore. Tannenbaum’s fondness for his store and its wares is a beautiful thing to behold.” – Lisa Kennedy, The New York Times

This screening will be accompanied by a special Q&A with star of the film Matthew Tannenbaum and director, A.B. Zax.
