    I shall never forget that fatefull night where instead of the horror classic Alien my father found Chitty Chitty Bang Bang where it was not expected. I can only wonder how a poor and distracted mother of three felt with the situation reversed.

    In a shopping strip not far from me is Premiere Video, which was my go-to video store for years, a much classier and better place than Blockbuster. I carried a list of films I wanted to see in a variety of genres. It was such a fulfilling experience. Of late I borrow from the library for free, which is great. But now when I drive by I’m both cheered to see it still open, and apprehensive, wondering if it’s the last time.

    not just the mainstream video stores like Blockbuster are gone, but the wonderful independent ones like Kim’s that carried some really obscure and interesting films.

    I miss Evergreen Video in the Village. You could find films by Winsor McKay and Jan Svankmajer.

  • I love that book!

    I love Premiere Video and I wish I could still afford to rent videos there. I’m glad to hear they’re still in business — and that they outlived Blockbuster — but for how long, who can say?
