Our Story

Enter a tsunami of extreme nostalgia by stepping into the UK’s only VHS rental shop and stand in front of our 8 foot high video walls. 

You can become a member and step through our sliding door of horror films and into our hidden cinema and arcade.

Opened by former video shop clerk Andy Johnson in 2018, so many people told him it will never work. 

Come and witness it in all its glory yourself.

Tarantino fan Andy, wants to follow in the Pulp Fiction director's footsteps with a mission to save old films and fight back against the digital tidal wave, making it near impossible to shoot new movies on film. 

He believes fans are craving a curated experience that doesn’t involve scrolling through endless lists of online movies, and that it's possible to buck the trend of online streaming services by giving customers an immersive film experience in a brick and mortar video shop. 

Millions of hours of film are currently at threat of being lost forever due to video tape mould. Or simply being junked, with hundreds of thousands of tapes being thrown on the scrap heap, as they are unable to be recycled. 

Based at the studio in Toxteth TV, on Windsor Street, Liverpool, the shop will offer vintage VHS players for rental alongside videotapes, private VHS screening rooms with regular curated cinema screenings, Q&As with directors and other events.
