January 15, 2021 - Expansion of Monday hours

Hello Video Angels,
We’re very excited to announce that starting Monday, January 18th, we’ll be expanding our hours to include noon to 4pm in-store browsing, and 4:30 to 7pm curbside pickup. This shift will be handled by Amber, one of our newer volunteers. If you’ve done a Monday night pickup in the last few months, you may have met her. She’ll be new to a lot of you. She’s written a short introduction for those of you who haven’t met her:

Hello Madison,
I am excited to be part of the team at Four Star Video! I began facilitating curbside pick-ups on Monday evenings in October and am happy to help expand in store browsing! I recently returned to Madison from the Pacific Northwest and was happy to learn that Four Star Video was still operating. I decided to help promote video rentals throughout the community by volunteering at Four Star and am looking forward to this expansion of services. As a long time film fan, I believe video stores are very important cultural institutions; especially so in this time of confinement and uncertainty. I hope you will be patient with me as I learn the ins and outs of running the store, and you will be understanding as I get to know you and your film preferences. Please stop in (observing the new COVID protocols!) to say hello and pick up a few movies while you’re at it!  

We’re looking forward to seeing you all on Mondays from now on!

Staff Picks

Andy says:
Friendship, like fundamentalist Christianity, is difficult.

Hanna says:
ok so this pick is actually for Edward Penishands but porn titles don't display in our online catalog so this is the next best thing, Edward Penishands won't make sense without having seen this first anyways.

Helen says:
Billy Joel related fatalities have slowly declined since 1987, but there are still a few every year.

Lewis says:
Julianne Moore is great and all, but you really need to see the original.

Nick P says:
did you know that caramel can get stale? even INSIDE a cadbury egg?

Sarah says:
