Il documentario tratteggia in maniera essenziale e mai pretenziosa, un affresco nostalgico di quello che è stato il cinematografo e la sua distribuzione nelle sale di proiezione napoletane. Partendo dalla figura centrale di un vecchio proiezionista e collezionista di pellicole e cinemabilia, il sig. Alberto Bruno, vero e proprio collante narrativo dell’opera, il prodotto propone allo spettatore alcuni spunti di riflessione sui modi in cui il fenomeno della sala sia stato vissuto e si sia evoluto nel corso degli anni, fino a raccontarne la contemporaneità e le aspettative future.
