"The way of the Dodo"

#1 by Tyler Hatwell , Mon Jul 18, 2016 11:45 pm

I just came across this quite sweet little documentary about my local film shop, Umit & Son that might be of interest. If this has been posted before, my apologies.

Need to pop to Umit's again before my holiday

On the other forum Tyler, but never here.

I wanted to visit Umit in April and was only about 10 minutes away from his shop when I was near Euston with a little time left before our journey. Trouble was, it was Sunday...doh!
One day hopefully.

Thanks for posting. A fascinating man with an equally fascinating shop!

When you do we'll have to go for a pint! Offer extends to others who find themselves near Hackney too

It is possible that me and my family will travel to London next year. I am very tempted to go there, but it is probably not the funniest thing on earth for my wife and kid, so if I get there the visit will be rather quick I am afraid.

I'm lucky enough to live about 15 minutes away from Umit's place. He's such a passionate, knowledgable and generous chap. Not to keen on parting with his movies though, and who can blame him? It's a stunning collection. Last time I squeezed through the doorway (it's that kind of place) I almost knocked over a massive 35mm print of one of Spielberg's finest family movies... ;) God only knows where he gets the stuff! Projectors, editors, cameras, film stock, soundtrack albums, books, magazines; you could spend a day in there and hardly move from the spot (there ain't much room to move anyway!). There's also a lovely cafe a few doors up so if you guys ever make the pilgrimage let me know :)
