City Lore has added some more Coney Island programming to its lineup.  This time, the advocates for grassroots cultures are presenting a screening of the 2014 documentary Famous Nathan.

Directed by famous Nathan’s grandson, Lloyd Handwerker, the film chronicles both the personal and public history of the iconic Brooklyn eatery, Nathan’s Famous of Coney Island. It took a whopping three decades to make, and is chock full of interviews with family and former employees. The film already has a few accolades under its belt, including Best Documentary Feature at the 2014 Coney Island Film Festival and the Audience Award at the 2015 Jewish Film Festival in Berlin.

The screening will take place at City Lore Gallery (56 E. 1st St., New York), tomorrow, April 28, at 7:00pm. Tickets can be found here.
