Nomadic Cinephiles

My Blockbuster store in Quincy, Mass. is closing. This is why: My Globe article on how brick-and-mortar video stores are disappearing and leaving a wake of nomadic cinephiles


  1. Lately I've only been to the brick-and-mortars to buy the cheap DVDs as they're closing.

    I do miss the experience of going to them to pick up a movie. I'm surprised I still have friends because I used to make them mad trying to pick one out.

    It's similar to the old-school movie theatres closing on account of the new state-of-the-art facilities offering an "experience".

  2. Thanks Terrence. I can totally see that.
