    Holy hell, I'm the next town over from Raleigh and I had no idea an Alamo theater was opening. And this shop they're opening sounds great, I'll probably be going to this place a lot.

    That's great. I still have and watch my VCR - there are some movies that won't make it to the newer formats...and when/if they do there are sometimes issues that cause the newer version to look worse than the VHS version

    .......example # 426 of why the Alamo Draft House fucking rules!

    Hopefully the store does well and other locations follow suit. I'll gladly make a day of it, drive 90 minutes to have a couple brews and buy a flick or 10.

    My buddy Josh of the Lunchmeat VHS Zine/website is the co-manager/VHS Culture Captain! If I ever make it down to that neck of the woods I'll definitely be stopping in.
