    1. Moviola is a story about a movie mogul who immigrated and started a shop which he soon turned into a small Nickolodeon, and that developed into a full-fledged studio. The story is told in flashback when a young man comes to Ben in hopes of purchasing the studio and Ben remembers his glorious time there.

    4. Some fascinating insights into the world of cinema and filmmaking from the early days, plus gossip about some of the big stars.
