BLSM Offer/ Products: Vidiots, one of the country’s largest independent video stores, breaks new ground this summer as it opens Vidiots Annex, an innovative film study center.
Now in its 25th year, Vidiots moves forward to provide movie lovers with a place where they can learn more about those films and genres that intrigue, excite and inspire them. Want to know more about French films after the New Wave ? How about taking courses on this generation’s auteurs or a class on eroticism and film? The Vidiots Annex, located in a stylish and comfortable classroom within the store, will feature expert teachers and filmmakers talking about the movies they love best…it’s like going back to film school but without the homework. The Annex will also be a place where a regular film club can meet and will offer community outreach to film students at local high schools.
The Annex is an organic development inspired by the many customers who love to come up to the counter and chat with the store’s knowledgeable staff about their latest discoveries. For its 25th anniversary, Vidiots will now offer the perfect place to continue those cinematic conversations. Schedules and registration information can be found at our website above.
