A young poet gets the brilliant idea to live in a department store, hiding by day, and courting his muse by night where it's quiet, and he can have all his needs met. But, to his surprise, he learns his brilliant idea's not exactly original; there are other residents who dodge the night watchmen, and who keep their existence secret at all costs. And one of them is a young woman who wants to leave, but is to frightened to go. And Charles finds that he wants to show her the larger world outside. Written by
A musical play about a mystical night society.

The movie was originally supposed to be filmed at Macy's Department Store in New York City. Rehearsals were held there and footage of star Anthony Perkins
was shot outside of Macy's on September 25, 1966 (available as an extra on the Entertainment One DVD release), but ultimately permission to film in the store was denied. Production then moved to the (now defunct) Stern Brothers department store in Manhattan. See more

I've lived here since the crash of '97. I've survived two mergers, three complete redecorations and the move from 14th Street. It required many sacrifices. May I say, I hope you're not the latest of them.
