From Our Editors
The largest surviving video chain in the world, I Luv Video is West Campus’s sanctuary for movies, TV shows and video games. The bulk of this Austin storefront is divided up into five rows, each intricately decorated using the spines of old VHS boxes, while movies play on televisions scattered overhead. Chuckle-worthy commentaries written by the staff line the covers of the DVDs, while a back room, known as “Vintage Heaven,” houses VHS tapes, records, cassettes and 8-tracks that send customers back into the past. There’s a real nostalgia vibe inside I Luv Video, where young college types and aging locals alike mingle over hard-to-find titles and obscure videos. And on Tuesdays, after 6 P.M., visitors can enjoy a free beer while browsing through titles.
