Film enthusiast Roland Fernando entered the movie-rental industry more than 30 years ago, building Video Express into a movie emporium that carries hard-to-find and vintage films, independent releases, and blockbuster hits. Walls lined with blue neon tubes evoke a retro movie theatre, leading customers along shelves stocked with children's movies, dramas, horrors, comedies, documentaries, and Woody Allen's napping nook. The store also stocks video games for Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360, and offers one or two-day console rentals.
Sooke Video To Go's owner Bryan Davis oversees an entertainment emporium that has been doling out movies for rental and purchase since 1982. Customers cruise new releases of video games and movies on DVD and Blu-ray and take breaks to challenge fellow film buffs to matches on the resident air hockey table. The store's expert staff updates Blu-ray firmware, and patrons can send in DVDs or CDs by mail before they undergo dips in disc-repair machines, from which they emerge as scratch-free as a newborn turntable.
