Some anonymous filmmakers have created Save Coney Island: The Movie. From their YouTube page, where they posted a trailer this week, they describe it as follows: "When Thor Equities, an infamous real-estate company, threatens to build condominiums on Coney Island's core amusements, Amos Wengler, the troubadour, must keep the spirit of Coney Island alive with a song before all the memories fade forever. The life, spirit and essence of Coney Island explode on the screen as the film explores the inter-dynamics of Coney Island's social life."
All the usual characters make an appearance, from Coney's fake mayor Dick Zigun to Lola Staar to the neighborhood troubadour Amos Wengler. They've also set up a MySpace page, and more announcements about the documentary are promised. [via Kinetic Carnival]
