Bill Hader, John Waters, Thelma Schoonmaker and more reflect on the golden age of neighborhood video stores.
A NOSTALGIC LOOK BACK AT NEIGHBORHOOD VIDEO STORES
Like that one-second blip of an episode of Ally McBeal at the beginning of your bootlegged version of ROBOCOP, the venerable video store remains.
AT THE VIDEO STORE, a hopeful documentary featuring John Waters, Bill Hader, and Thelma Schoonmaker, explores the lingering affection for tangible cinema and those community-driven spaces carefully curated by your local film nerd. In a now fully digital world, this film asks what we lose in the space between celluloid and the cell phones.
