showtimes and tickets

STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS tells the story of Ricky, a 13-year old boy with Asperger’s Syndrome who gets lost one day in the New York City subway system.

While his mother frantically searches for him above ground, the sensory-sensitive Ricky is exposed to the cacophony, eccentricity, and menace found in New York’s underground (including some scenes shot during Hurricane Sandy, which came to figure into the film’s story), resulting in a truly authentic view into both the wonders and the horrors of what lies below.

"Rings true from beginning to end." - Film Comment

"Completely, exhilaratingly alive." - New York Times

"A standout… leverages terrific acting and terrific production values to deliver a tale of desperation and hope.” - Film Journal

I want to thank Sam Fleishner for directing this remarkable film. Andrea Suarez Paz & Jesus Sanchez-Velez gave amazing performances. It reminded me of "The Little Fugitive." Fleishner surpassed it by taking us into the mind of a communicationally challenged child. My only issue with the film came when the mother's friend, Carmen berated a police officer because he tells the mother he has a video of her son, but it turns out to be a different child. We should always show respect to officers because of the sacrifices they make for us. When they make us mistakes,it's due to the pressure of their job.

Offers a completely new and important view of New York city: from the point of view of a child that might be more accurate than the view we (the 'normal' people) have of this city.
