The Disappearing Video Store

Trent Nicholas laments on the disappearing video store in today’s RTD:

When I saw a “Closing” sign on my neighborhood Blockbuster, a pang hit me. The disappearance of video rental stores inspired me to write a tribute. After all, many lost causes get endless elegies and regretful diatribes by observers unable to let go.

Let’s hope the Video Fan can hold out against all odds.

Nicholas teaches film history at VCU.
