Check out this interesting documentary if you are from the generation which use to go out to video store for a weekend movie, If you grew up in the 80s and 90s then I bet you miss going out to rent movies.
The short doc is called The Last Video Store. It is based on 20th Century Flicks, which is the oldest video rental store in the World. “It’s small, the close-knit crew has unwittingly become custodians of the largest collection of DVDs and VHS tapes in the UK, and faces a constant struggle to adapt and survive in the age of streaming and downloading.”
The director of the documentary, Arthur Cauty, said in a statement:
“It’s an ode to the video shop experience and a bygone way of watching movies. With studios like Disney launching their own streaming services and joining industry kingpins such as Netflix and Hulu, we have an almost endless flow of entertainment available at the click of a button. It’s amazing to me that a little independent video store can survive the Netflix cull and even outlive Blockbuster. Drop into the shop next time you’re in Bristol for a dose of movie nostalgia, have a chat about film and go home with a VHS rarity and a bag of popcorn.”
