Greetings, everyone. I'm a Boulder transplant, so I grew up with The Video Station
, the most awesome place to rent movies for a thousand miles at least. Now I live in Golden and I'd like to find a place that won't look at me funny if I mention D. W. Griffiths or (if I'm lucky) Yasujiro Ozu.
Westword gave The Bohemian Bean a rave review, but it's almost as far as The Video Station, and sixty miles (30 round trip for pickup and dropoff) seems a bit of a silly drive for a movie. Are there any stores I should check out in the west metro area? I'd like to avoid Blockbuster's ploy to get me to watch the same hit movies as everyone else.
Be seeing you.
Oops. This was supposed to go to denver
. In response to the two lovely folks who've commented so far, I dislike Netflix for a few reasons. First, at my recent cinematic rate, buying used DVDs might be more cost-effective than a regular Netflix subscription. Second, and more fundamentally, I like to choose exactly what movie I want to watch. Despite the glorious selection of NetFlix, you can't use it to plan a movie night. You can't say "Hey, let's have a Versions of Dracula night next Friday!" or "Hey, wanna come to my Tuesday Hitchcock night?" So while it's a cool way to go through the classics or check out some recommendations, it's a far cry from a replacement for a good video store or library. (Hmm. I wonder what kind of movie selection the Denver Public Library has...)
