      Does ANYBODY go to a video shop anymore

      to me this seems like an old fashioned pastime,
      But i do miss going down to blockbusters and looking at all those covers, then deciding with my GirlFriend now my wife what to watch.
      There was usually loads of couples in there looking for something to watch, they usually went on to the off-licence for some wine and popcorn.

      a lot of those shops seem to have been replaced by bookies.

      anybody go anymore.

      If so have they changed, is there still a cage around the people serving.

      Here in Oz, I frequently go to the video DVD store. There are a large number of stores in Melbourne, the most being of the large chain: Video-Ezy.

      We must have a much lower crime rate because there are no cages here ( of what I've seen). Like you I love looking over the covers on the shelves.

      I am a movie buff and love going to the cinema also. I wish these stores never completely disappear as it is an enjoyable pastime.

      Though the a lot of the cable companies offer movies on demand so you don't have to go to a video store to rent a movie but I still think them pretty full come every Friday and Saturday evening when I drive by.
