Attention cinephiles, wannabe filmmakers and couch potatoes with great home theater systems: this place is heaven on earth. Welcome to Videotheque, the San Gabriel Valley's hippest, coolest, most extensive source for rare, classic, indie, cult, documentary, foreign and all-around-groovy film rentals. If you saw it in film school, at a midnight show or on the Sundance Channel -- you can find it at Videotheque. But not to worry, if the director's cut of Reservoir Dogs or 15 straight hours of Bergman just doesn't do it for you, there are always new releases and old favorites to choose from. (Go ahead -- get a Bollywood double feature, The Criterion Edition of Jules and Jim, a documentary on Chernobyl, a Wim Wenders retrospective, Reefer Madness and still manage to bring home Shrek for the kids!) Don't fret if one of your favorite old films has still not been released on DVD ... because Videotheque probably has it available on VHS.
In addition to the extraordinary kid-in-a-candy-store selection of rentals, the store offers DVDs for sale, too. And -- oh rapturous joy -- Videotheque will buy used DVDs for cash or store credit. All this, plus it's across the street from Busters (and just steps from the Gold Line train platform.)
