Great documentary about people who love and collect typewriters and the shop in Berkeley CA that keeps them running. More at .

Saw it last night at the Sie Film Center in Denver.

I ran that flick about a year ago and remember enjoying it a lot.
We also had the film-maker, the two store employees and Tom Hanks
there to intro & do Q&A after.

(edit: I'm not 100% sure about Hanks. That same week I ran one of
the premiere screenings of SULLY and I know he was at that one, and
I THINK I recall him making a surprise appearance for the typewriter
movie, since he was still 'in town', he's in it and he is is a manual
typewriter aficionado. )

Tom Hanks was there and it was a treat. I drive by that actual typewriter place all the time. Great story!
