June 20, 2021 - New Hours Starting 6/21

Hello Video Angels,
We’re very happy to announce that starting tomorrow, June 21st, we’ll be expanding in-store browsing as well as loosening some of the restrictions we’ve had in place for the last year. We’ll now have in-store browsing from noon until 7pm Friday through Wednesday, while still offering curbside pickup anytime during those hours. On Thursdays, we’ll still be offering curbside pickup only from 6pm to 7pm, as well as delivery on Fridays. 

We’ll also be upping the capacity to 5 customers at a time instead of 1 customer/household at a time. Customers will no longer be required to set aside items from browsing to be sanitized, but we will still sanitize all returned rentals. All customers will still be required to wear a mask to enter. 

If you have any questions or feedback about these policies, please let us know.

Staff Picks

Amber says:
Joanna (Katharine Ross) is a free-thinking, liberated woman whose husband has moved her from New York City to a small town called Stepford where she notices the female residents are disturbingly perfect. Her best friend there, Bobbie (Paula Prentiss), is also a recent new-comer and notices the odd behavior too. They team up to raise awareness among the housewives and to uncover the source of the strange attitude the women possess. When Bobbie returns from a weekend away with her husband acting differently, Joanna is immediately suspicious and feels her time is coming. The bone chilling ending is extraordinary!

Hanna says:
wouldn't it be nice?

Jason says:
if you went grocery shopping in your dreams would you go to Freddy Kroeger?

Laura says:
"Happy Death Day" is a fun romp with just enough scares to fit the bill for Halloween. It's got its clever and sweet moments and I enjoyed their take on reliving he same day over and over. Jessica Rothe proves memorable as the thoroughly unlikeable sorority girl turned powerful heroine. I'll admit I couldn't predict who the killer was but maybe you're smarter than me. Bye-ee!

Lewis says:
southern vampires have fangs on the bottom too

Robert says:
It certainly isn’t high art, but this schlocky, slightly brainless Steven King adaptation has enough genre thrills to satisfy any nostalgic cravings for early ‘90s horror. Starring Mädchen Amick fresh off of “Twin Peaks”, this tale of predatory shapeshifters in a Midwestern town is the sort of Halloween movie that’s best enjoyed with lots of friends (and beer). Swarms of cats make the film’s finale a novel viewing experience!
