Best of Boston

2001 Best Video Store

City Video

In some stores you search for hours for a decent title. In others, like City Video, you instantly strike gold. Maybe that’s because its shelves aren’t stuffed full of 6,000 copies of lame summer blockbusters, but instead feature an overwhelming and diverse selection of cult movies, foreign films, and classics. If you do get stuck, the literate staff bubbles with picks and suggestions. Take advantage of the “Two-for Tuesday” offer to help the week pass that much quicker.
