About the Film

I Like Movies
Canada | 2022 | 100 min. | Chandler Levack

In 2002 suburban Canada, a 17-year-old film aficionado with his sights set on NYU picks up a gig at a local video store where he learns what it takes to grow up and that maybe not everybody wants to hear him bloviate about Paul Thomas Anderson movies all day.

Director Chandler Levack scheduled to attend.

Bring a playable VHS tape to the screening and get a free popcorn! Tapes will be donated to the Egyptian Video Archive—the largest collection of VHS tapes in a movie theater on the West Coast. Plus, one lucky audience member will also win a goodie bag of physical media from Scarecrow Video Library.
