Movies are like dreams: they come to us in the dark, they play on our subconscious fears and desires, and the best ones prominently feature Hall of Fame baseball players lecturing children on how to have fun in small towns. Dream a little dream on the big silver screen with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of movie rentals and motion-picture memorabilia at VisArt Video.
An independent establishment packing in more than 30,000 cinematic titles, VisArt Video boasts a brigade of movie magic on DVD, Blu-ray, and VHS as well as a spread of motion-picture memorabilia. The more-than-5,000-square-foot compound houses flicker films from traditional mainstream titles to genres including horror, cult, documentary, and foreign pictures. Snatch a few rental films (up to $4.25) for a cozy in-home viewing or snag a selection of sale films (all less than $10) to impress your bookshelves. The friendly staff can recommend personality-fitting pictures based on an optional five-paragraph essay, or walk you through VisArt's shelves of T-shirts ($16.99–$22.99), movie posters ($6.99–$9.99), action figures ($5.95+), and framed movie artwork ($19.99–$29.99). The pleasant crew also welcomes video-rental requests and special orders for new and obscure films including Disney's never-released cartoon remake of Boondock Saints. A regular membership (free) is required for video rentals, and members of the VisArt Film Club ($10 sign-up fee) receive every sixth rental for free.
