There is one girl in particular, shes a little hippy and thick in the middle with dark wavy hair who is just a steaming pile of b*#!h. They have a great selection but the rudness of the employees completely overshadows any of those perks.

This is one of the best video stores in the neighborhood, especially for people who love movies. It has a great indie and foreign film collection, and the staff (unlike the commercial chain stores) actually know and love movies. Extremely reasonable rates, just make sure to turn the videos in on time! One of my favorite places in the neighborhood...a great example of why one should shop at an independent video store instead of the big chains.

THE WORST customer service. Shockingly rude. The men behind the counter hate their job. They are also known for treating women terribly. Skip this place...

All in all, a nice little video store. The selection is fantastic, including a wide range of foreign films, arranged by country for easy searching. There's only one problem, but unfortunately it's a doozy. The rental times are scandalously short. I mean honestly, three days is not so terribly long a time to keep a new release. I find myself never renting more than one movie at a time from them, because I know there's no way I'll have time to watch them all before it's time to return them.

Sometimes Blockbuster and Hollywood video just don't cut it. Especially when you are looking for that obscure indie that you once randomly saw on cable tv.

PROS: Lots of Options
CONS:

Tired of the same Hollywood tedium of Blockbuster ? Specialty Video is the antidote. This is not a chain video store, but an independent place in the heart of Lakeview. They have the usual new releases, but their focus is really on the rest of their collection. They have a great selection of cult classics, independent films, classes, and documentaries, in addition to the usual sections of horror, drama, comedies, etc. This is the type of place where you can go in with no idea of what you want, and find 4 or 5 really interesting things to rent that you never new existed. The people who work there are great, and are really part of the neighborhood. I love this place for the selection, and also for the true community atmosphere that is there.
