Written and directed by New York theater icons Charles Busch and Carl Andress over the phone while in lockdown, The Sixth Reel is a classic screwball caper comedy set in contemporary Greenwich Village.

Busch stars as Jimmy, a movie-obsessed New Yorker who finds a long-lost film from the Golden Ages of Hollywood. As Jimmy tries to deliver the precious film into the right hands, he meets a host of film collectors, each more eccentric than the last! Featuring an all star cast including Julie Halston, Margaret Cho, André De Shields, and Tim Daly, this outrageous homage to 1930s madcap comedies delivers the laughs and warm nostalgia of classic Hollywood.

"Charles Busch writes, directs, and stars in a delightful, frantic, thoughtful picture about the hunt for a lost film." -
