Kim's Video

1074 Bank St, Ottawa, ON K1S 3X3, Canada


Ottawa Premiere!

Physical media reigns supreme in Kim’s Video, an elegiac tribute to the iconic video store in New York City that inspired a generation of cinephiles before it mysteriously closed its doors and sent its legendary film archive to a small Sicilian village for “safekeeping.” But what starts as an homage to cinema quickly becomes a rescue mission to ensure the eternal preservation of the beloved video collection.

5 Stars! “a masterclass” (Moviegoing)

“Kim’s Video is packed with drama, mystery, and humor. ” (Aisle Seat)

“you will certainly be enchanted by this zany, fun, and sometimes unbelievable documentary. It is the kind of non-fiction film that uncovers such shocking and ridiculous things that it’s easy to question its truthfulness, making it all the more entertaining.” (Next Best Picture)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
