Best of Boston

2000 Best Video Store

Hollywood Express

Attention. Compassion. Unparalleled Service. No, it’s not a bank—it’s a video store. Actually, it’s a chain of them, staffed by some of the most highly regarded film fanatics in town. They can answer all your dumb movie questions like, “Do you have the one with the girl, and what’s-his-name, and they get marooned in the Pacific…?” The deals are sweet too—five tapes for $10 every night (no new releases), and two-for-one on Tuesdays. Only happy endings here!
