Movie about South Street Diner on its way to festivals
South Street Diner owner Sol Sidell was overwhelmed during the recent screening of the Long Haul Films documentary about his business. He didn’t know the filmmakers before they approached him about filming in the restaurant, and he wasn’t sure what they would come up with. In the end, he was pleased - and touched. “Sometimes when you’re in the adrenaline high you forget how important the diner is to customers and what it means to them,’’ said Sidell, who took over the 24-hour restaurant 14 years ago when he was 26.
