We were just talking about this last Blockbuster the other day. Where I live we still have a 'Video Theater', the locals all believe it's a front for some sort of dirty dealings.

Step 2: Put in a DVD player that doesn't work, and turn off cable/WiFi.
Step 3: Add a solitary Laserdisc player
Step 4: ONLY stock "Baby Geniuses" and "Speed 2: Cruise Control"

Whenever I see these threads I usually laugh because there are like dozens of Family Video video stores still open around where I live, but recently I've noticed that they have tons of signs outside their locations advertising that "WE SELL CBD OIL!!!", which is probably a very bad sign...

Maybe there's a VCR in the back room, and a copy of Uncle Buck on VHS.

Guests will end up spending the night trying to decide on what to watch.

In high school we had one friend whose dad had a new car every six months and when Todd wrecked his Camaro he got a new one the next day.  We all joked about not knowing what Todd's dad did and that he must be a drug dealer.  Much later we find out he owned an adult book/video store downtown called Cindy's.  Turns out he sold cocaine from the place and somehow ended up involved in the Iran-Contra scandal.

Our last one around here closed last year.  One of the pawn shops moved into the building.  The pawn shop soon had a sign out front that advertised DVDs for $1.

Can't say I feel nostalgic enough to stay in such a place. All I remember is the burnt popcorn and feet smell along with the late fees and surly teen employees. No thanks.

I came to say this exact thing, including the cbd oil. I assume I can get it as a topping on my Marcos pizza

The key was having a friend who worked there*. Their everyday employees could eliminate late fees with a few clicks. Zero oversight - or at least nobody who was looking to make a career of it so they didn't care. They could also set aside new movies and games. One of those weird good connections of 90s youth. Like a friend at a gas station that sold booze.

*It helped that I was a teenager at the time

I never had a connection at movie rental place, but when my younger brother worked at a movie theater, it was great.  If he was ripping tickets, he would let me through.

And if it was working concessions, but it was slow, he would talk to the ticket ripper and tell them to let me pass.

/Watched a lot of new movies during the summer of '99.

Not true. District managers were vultures for late fees. If a store wrote off too many, the SM was fired.

Ha. One of my high school girlfriends worked at the movies. You're right, another amazing connection for a teenager.

Except, and I'm not happy to admit this, I saw Beverly Hills Ninja like five times because....you know what? Fark jt. I saw the damn movie five times.

I was super high.

Come on. You clearly read the next part of that sentence, right?
