This documentary is a great piece on a local independent video store in Cambridge, MA called “Hollywood Express.” The once huge industry has mostly disappeared, with only a handful of these excellent, independently owned business left. It’s sad, the local video store was THE place to find and discover movies when I was a kid, now, they’ve mostly gone the way of the Soda Shop. Now, we get our movies on demand, on netflix, or, at your local Redbox.
“Hollywood Express,” is from Adam Van Vorhees, and was an official selection at quite a few festivals, including the Woods Hole Film Festival 2012, Boston Cinema Census 2012, and Winner of the Silver Chris at the Columbus Film & Video Festival 2012. Enjoy!
