Educated staff, fun films, fresh popcorn. I love a video store with an employee picks section and this one is inspirational.

Cons: Not next door

I really love watching videos, my favorites are foreign. In Reel video they have a great selection of videos from all over the globe. They still have a good selection of tapes, if you are into the oldschool. They are open into late and they always have the video your are looking for.

Reel Video is a very large store, and they typically have multiple copies of even older, more obscure titles. They also have a fun but confusing filing system--things can be shelved by director, genre, particular actors, etc. This can be informative or annoying, depending on your mood, but it helps to know that many videos are cross-shelved. They have a great foreign-language and indie collections. They are still over 50% videos, but the DVD collection is pretty large and growing. They close at 11, which is later than most places around here. Membership required.
AC Transit #42, F Transbay, and near Downtown Berkeley BART.

PROS: Parking lot (though cramped), Wide selection
CONS:

If you're still renting the old fashioned way, do yourself a favor and go to this treasure trove of titles. An excellent selection of foreign, cult, and independent films, employees also tend to know what they're talking about. Which is more than you can say about Blockbuster.
