Rochester's film community is truly amazing -- a smart, passionate group who help make this a special place. While we love nothing more than for you to find that next magical film under our Art Deco roof with the largest possible bag of Little Popcorn, or to enjoy live music in our cafe, the safety of our guests and employees is the top priority. As a result, The Little has decided to suspend all film/music programming, and temporarily close to the public until further notice.
We continue to monitor updates and adhere to guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as the state and county, regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus.
If you've purchased tickets in advance, you will be given the following options:
- Full refund
- Tickets will be honored for a later screening
- Conversion of the ticket costs to a tax-deductible donation to the Little Theatre
We look forward to welcoming you back through our doors as soon as we safely can. Thank you for your patience and continued support.

Last Train to Zinkov
With violin, viola, banjo, and vocals, Last Train to Zinkov creates sparkling folk music that tells of the beauty and peace of home, of delight and sadness and the wild human emotions inherent in living and dying. David and Nathan Gusakov, father and son, play with a lively, toe-tapping touch, sing with mournful sensitivity, and exhibit a creative chemistry that can only be born of a lifetime of relationship. Their original songs and compositions reflect their love of traditional American old-time music, gypsy jazz and swing, and their own Eastern European roots.
David Gusakov arrived in Vermont in 1973, joining the Vermont Symphony that year and bluegrass/swing band Pine Island the next. In the intervening 42 years he has been a full-time musician, playing with such groups as the Midnite Plowboys, Redwing, Will Patton Ensemble, Swing Noire, and Michele Choiniere. At home in a wide variety of genres, he brings improvisatory flair and depth of feeling to everything he plays.
Nathan Gusakov lives in Lincoln, Vermont, near the headwaters of the New Haven River, where he makes his living as a carpenter, sugarmaker, and musician. Nate is self-taught on the banjo, and his first album of all-original music, Running Clear (2011), received praise for its “stellar clawhammer-style banjo and rich lyricism” (Jamie Masefield, Jazz Mandolin Project). www.nategusakov.com
