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.

“One of the most fun, entertaining documentaries I’ve ever seen.” - Tim Rhys, Moviemaker Magazine

“Breathless, loving, intelligent and kooky.” - Willamette Week

“This one got me right in the heart! Funny and insightful.” - ThirdCoastReview

**NOTE!: **This title was curated by the rewind-inclined minds at LUNCHMEAT, the most bodacious destination for the appreciation, celebration, and preservation of VHS and video store culture.
