“Wins us over with humor and a pointed touch of melancholy”
The Hollywood Reporter

“Taps into so many resonant aspects of what America used to be…an enchanting and wistfully profound time-tripping reverie.”
Variety

The history of the now-defunct Horn and Hardart chain of coin-operated Automat restaurants is detailed through historical material and interviews—often hysterically funny—with New Yorkers and Philadelphians who recall the golden age of automated dining. Interviewees include Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and more.
