‘Moonstruck’ bakery files for bankruptcy
Brooklyn’s Cammareri Bros. Bakery, made famous in the 1987 movie “Moonstruck” starring Cher and Nicholas Cage, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
The company has assets of $126,000 and liabilities at almost $500,000, Crain’s New York Business reported. It owes money to fewer than 50 creditors.
“Moonstruck” was shot at the bakery’s retail location on Sackett and Henry Streets in Downtown Brooklyn, which was open for 80 years before closing in 1998. It then merged with Monteleone in Carroll Gardens.
In 2011, it opened a bakery and cafe in Hoboken but reportedly closed after just one year.
In recent years, the bakery has operated as a wholesale bread business, serving eateries throughout the city.
The owners have not commented on the bankruptcy filing.
