Jewish Film Festival Screening: The Automat
August 21 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Documentary Film | 79 Minutes
This documentary centers on an artifact that seems culled from the futuristic universe of The Jetsons: The Automat, brainchild of entrepreneurs Joseph Horn and Frank Hardart. A vending machine offering fresh cooked meals for a nickel in a commissary-style eatery, the Automat became a staple of New York and Philadelphia city life from 1902 to 1991. Included is a Mel Brooks’ song, specially composed for the film.
