Scarecrow Video
























I'm flying to Seattle tonight for a visit and of course I'll be seeing movies while I'm there. One of my favorite places in the world happens to be Scarecrow Video. I just get a warm and tingly all over feeling when I walk through their doors. They've got upwards of 75,000 videos to rent, including thousands from other countries that take a special all-region DVD player to see. They've got a mammoth foreign section--you want to see films from Chile, Mongolia or Finland? Then Scarecrow is for you. Unreal horror, science fiction and anime collections too. But, my personal favorite thing about it is the massive section that is separated strictly by director! That completely appeals to my film geek DNA. I'll be taking in some of my favorite local theatres like the Harvard Exit, Neptune and Egyptian but I can promise you I'll spend hours over the next week just absorbing the sights and sounds of one the best places on planet earth...Scarecrow Video.

I'm going to have to visit Scarecrow Video if I ever get a chance to visit Seattle.

Scarecrow is just an amazing place. I spent a few hours there just roaming the aisles while I was back. Rented about 9 movies including a couple of multiregion ones--a Tony Gatliff film, one from Tsai Ming-Liang and a baseball movie from South Korea. I was in heaven.
