The Nostalgia of a Video Rental Store
Mar 31, 2016
For nearly 30 years, the Videoport rental store was a beloved institution in Portland, Maine. This short documentary by the production company p3 chronicles the sentimentality behind the store and its bittersweet end. “It survived because of its expertise,” states an article in the Portland Press Herald. “Its nerdy staff knew everything about movies, and never turned down a chance to make a suggestion for an obscure or obvious film.”
