Plot Sypnosis:

Take a nostalgic trip back in time to the hallowed halls of your favorite rental shops with Mom N’ Pop: The Indie Video Store Boom of the ‘80s / ‘90s; a wistful new documentary chronicling the meteoric rise and gradual fall of the independently owned, neighborhood video store. Tucked within strip malls, tanning salons, gas stations, and grocery stores around the country, the mom & pop video store became the Mecca for budding film and video game fanatics to satiate their burgeoning media obsessions. Hear video store owners and employees, as well as filmmakers, podcasters, and collectors discuss the eccentricities of the regional video spots that left an indelible imprint on their lives forever.

Featuring interviews with media personalities James Rolfe (Angry Video Game Nerd), Ming Chen (Comic Book Men), & “Weird” Paul Petroskey (Will Work for Views), indie / SOV filmmaking luminaries including Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger), Tim Ritter (Truth or Dare?), Gary P. Cohen (Video Violence), Joel D. Wynkoop (Lost Faith), & Brad Sykes (Camp Blood), plus profiles on indispensable, still functioning video stores like VisArt Video, Orbit DVD, & Videotheque, Mom N’ Pop: The Indie Video Store Boom of the ‘80s / ‘90s is quintessential viewing for anyone who cherished their local independent video store and utilized it as a communal rendezvous for connecting with other like minded film aficionados.
