God I miss them, most of the time it was the first time you got to see the movie. There was nothing better than having a night in and going to the video store to choose a movie. Wayside movies on Caunce street was one I used a lot or Gemini in Layton. Fuck technology advancements. What other video shops were there part from the obvious Blockbusters?

Village Video on Wood St St Annes. At first it was half VHS and half Betamax. Soon became all VHS.



Prior to video shops, there was a lady who called each Friday evening with a boot full of videos that we chose from a catalogue. Watched all the video nasties thanks to her.

Tower Video on Cookson St. Alan Heywoods video shop was just over the road but never used it. Global Video on Churh St was OK.

Alan Haywood then Tower video both Blackpool town centre . Alan Haywood had loads of porn videos, got raided by the police and got sent down. His mrs then ran it with nothing stronger than an X rated horror.

Tower video owners had the number plate NUK 1E on an Audi

Never, I was only young when VHS's were around so top shelfers weren't my thing yet. Do you know how fucking disgusting a vagina looks to a 9 year old.

Gynn Video half way up the hill on Dickson Road was a big part of my upbringing. The tatty wooden inlay and its blatant copyright infringement of the batman logo outside will be ever a part of my mind. Wasn't the biggest of shops and I was probably it's most loyal customer between the ages of three and ten. Was a sad day when it closed.

Reminds me of that joke......

Little lad goes in the bathroom and catches his mum in the bath

"What's that" as he points

"Oh, it's where I got hit with an axe"

"It was a great shot mum, right in the twat"

Think you mean Global? At least that's what I think it was/is called? Was nearer to the Number 4. Think it's called Eclipse now.

Eclipse has just been games. They were the first just doing games. I bought and swapped megadrive games there. Twenty five+ years ago

That was back in late 90s, not sure what it sold after that. Gemini video used to have arcade machines in the back, spent most of my summer holidays playing Shinobi, Bubble Bobble and World Cup 90.

What was the video shop in Ansdell called? It was on Woodlands Road - I seem to remember it was Videodrome. Anyway, that one.

Used to live in flat over the road from that. My flatmate and I would go sit in the shop watching films and getting drunk with the guy that ran it.



Knew somebody in Dominos a couple of doors up who could supply pizza as well.
