Featuring an original new song written and performed by Mel Brooks, “The Automat” tells the 100-year story of the iconic restaurant chain Horn & Hardart, where generations of customers in New York and Philadelphia enjoyed food and coffee together at communal tables. From the perspective of former customers, including entertainer Mel Brooks, Starbucks founder Howard Schultz, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Secretary of State Colin Powell, the Horns, the Hardarts and key employees, this winning film will put a smile on your face as you’re transported back to the good ol’ days of nickel coffee, savory meatloaf, sweet tapioca pudding, lemon meringue pie and community.

Richard J.S. Gutman, America’s leading diner expert, will introduce the film.

Also available virtually from May 5-9.
