11 KING STREET, ALFRETON, DERBYSHIRE DE55 7AF
OPENING TIMES - SATURDAY & SUNDAY 11AM TILL 3PM
BE KIND & REWIND BACK TO THE LOCAL VIDEO SHOP
Do you remember those Friday and Saturday nights back in the 80s and 90s when you would make the trip to the local Video Shop and spend far too long scanning the video shelves? Not only to pick a film for the weekend but to stare in amazement at all the weird and wonderful films that were available with crazy, over the top artwork? Well, two friends want to bring that experience back as they open up their own 80s Video Shop called STRAIGHT TO VIDEO in Alfreton, Derbyshire.
Chris Annable, owner of GluPro Sports in Alfreton used to work in his local Video Shop whilst Rob Lane who presents the Straight To Video Podcast from which the shop takes its name, could never get a job in one! Together they have created their own 80s Video Shop - part Museum, part Movie Gift Shop which they hope will transport people back in time as they step into a snapshot of the past - long before YouTube, Netflix or even DVD.
The Straight To Video - 80s Video Shop features racks and racks of old, original VHS Tapes to browse, Movie Posters, Arcade Machines and even a wall of High School Lockers which they invite guests to sign or scribble a message or memory. We have our own Escape Room based on The Slaughtered Lamb from the classic film, An American Werewolf in London along with a Screening Room which takes you straight to The Overlook Theatre in The Shining.
