In Greenwich Village, Tim Klass runs the APOCALYPSE DRAFTHOUSE, a wild, weird, nearly-bankrupt movie theater famous for its beer, pizza and all-night marathons where fading celebrities drink and carouse with movie geeks. But one thing just might turn it around: a mysterious, magical girl on the run, who can get people and matter to do the most amazing things. Her name: SYLVIA FAUST. And she's on the run from a past darker than any theater.
A 1970s action star is supposed to host a three-movie kung fu marathon at the Apocalypse, but Tim just can't seem to get the guy sober. Can Sylvia Faust, the levitating mystery girl with the ability to change matter and minds, be the answer to his prayers—or the beginning of a nightmare? And should Tim hire her?
