Aw man! Now where am I going to get a movie and a six pack in one stop. No video store and no movie theater in the area, this sucks.

ADDED TO THE LIST OF WHALE-BONE CORSETERS AND NEWSPAPER REPORTERS.

A whale-bone corset store in that exact location on Mississippi would probably do pretty well.

Mohan just needs to hold on for about 15 years to take advantage of the nostalgia wave for DVDs.

IS KEVIN BACON IN THIS REMAKE?

After a ferocious Muay Thai practice, I went to Verité searching for Mon Oncle by the seminal director Jacques Tatí. The bearded Mohan scoffed at me asking sardonically, "You find that tripe funny?" Rebuffed, I followed his suggestion. Rambo was not good. That Mohan guy is a monster!

Aww, crap. Saw this notice last night and it actually kept me up. Worked and lived a few blocks away when it opened when nothing else existed on the street except one new bar (Crowbar) the one restaurant down the street where I worked. I remember thinking this 'hood is perfect, I've got my workplace, a bar and a great video store. Voila! Was on first name basis with all who worked there at the time, even with Marc. He's a hell of a nice dude, plus being from Wisconsin as well it's hard not to bond with a guy who's playing Bob Eucker radio broadcasts of Brewers pre-seasons games in the store. Got tons of great movie recommendations from everyone, things I wouldn't have seen like Von Trier's Kingdom series, twisted and dark Michael Heneke movies and many, many more. Thanks, VV. Marc and Nick and everyone.

This is terrible news. I live very near Video Verite, and I find that if I want to watch a movie it's often quicker and easier to walk there and rent something than it is to futz around with a bunch of dicey, slow, or low-quality torrent sites... Not that I'd ever do that. I'll miss that place.

In my fantasy world, some things -- like 23rd Street's Music Millenium and Mississippi Ave's Video Verite -- are Portland landmarks which should always be there.

Just a reminder that Video Verite was the very first "all DVD" store, I live in the neighborhood and remember when it opened and neighbors thought it was snotty that they only had DVDs, no VHS!! Oh my, how things change, rather quickly. All of the competition cannot match the amazing selection and of course the great recommendations from the folks behind the desk. Thanks for all the years providing good entertainment!
