With technology at our fingertips, we’ve become spoiled with pay-per-view movies at the ready and Netflix filling up our mailbox.
But there’s something to be said about going to the video store and actually strolling the aisles to find that perfect cinematic masterpiece to match your current mood.
You may not be able to judge a book by its cover, but you can learn a hell of a lot about a movie from its DVD sleeve!
And while Blockbuster may have eight billion copies of the latest mainstream release, it’s only in places like Premiere Video that you’ll find those true off-the-beaten path flicks. Their collection of obscurities is certain to turn you on to a rarely seen documentary about the rise and fall of the Tupperware industry or a coming of age story about Frida Kahlo’s unibrow.
Can’t find a particular movie? The staff will order it for you and add it to the collection. A quick look through their requested videos section is a sure fire way to take in some cinema you may have never heard of before.
And if you’ve trekked across town to rent, Premiere Video also has a drop off box in the Bishop Arts District so you don’t have to schlep back to the store to avoid a late fee.
Want to make it a date night? You bring the popcorn. We’ll bring historical epic about the hemophiliac eunuch cross-dresser hell bent on overthrowing the government of Constantinople and finding true love.
Or maybe just something with Brad Pitt.
$4 per rental.
Two nights for most movies, one night for new releases.
