Video Revival

Video Revival is an art house movie theater inside a former beauty salon on Rogers Avenue. When it first opened, it was truly quite hidden but it has since opened up its storefront and removed the original blue awning. Video Revival had a simple impetus – a movie theater closer to the area where the founders, Christian Hendricks, Erik Escobar and Hollis Johnson, live where they can revel in and share their penchant for indie, art house films. The auditorium style chairs inside come from a church in Philadelphia, found on Craigslist. The team drove down to get it in a Uhaul, picked the chairs up disassembled and reassembled everything in Crown Heights.

Nowhere Studios

Nowhere Studios, the former office of Untapped Cities, is a wonderfully communal co-working space on Atlantic Avenue. Husband and wife Porter and Sarah Fox run the space (and Nowhere Magazine) in a former garage, where they also built all the furniture inside and atop on the rooftop deck, where the members are also growing vegetables and herbs. A resident cat, Mister Miyagi, who was abandoned on the front doorstep and subsequently adopted, is the true manager of the office. Nowhere Studios hosts public workshops and events.
