WELCOME TO KUTSHER’S: The Last Catskills Resort -
DVD & Digital Release 6/23/15
Kutsher's Country Club was the last surviving Jewish resort in the Catskills. One of the legendary Borscht Belt hotels during its heyday, Kutsher's was family-owned and operated for over 100 years, until its sale and demolition in 2014. Exploring the full Dirty Dancing-era Catskills experience through a close up look at Kutsher’s rise and fall, this award-winning film captures a last glimpse of a lost world as it disappears before our eyes.
Welcome to Kutsher’s is now on DVD, Digital (Amazon, iTunes, VUDU) and Cable-on- Demand (Time Warner Cable & more). Visit our website for all platform release details. Get your copy today and revisit the Borscht Belt this summer!
