  • Pickup hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 12pm – 8pm (closed Monday)
  • Please call us at (206) 524-8554 to request and pay for your rentals before arriving. Your order will be available at our pickup window (located between our main doors and our parking lot)
  • During this period of limited service, we are unable to offer our 2-for-1 Wednesday promotion.
  • When picking up your order, please be mindful of social distancing regulations (wear a face covering, maintain a distance of at least 6 feet between those waiting for service, etc.
  • If you have rentals to return, You may always use the drop slots in the main doors which are open 24/7, and we are also still gladly accepting returns by mail.
  • Consider purchasing pre-paid rental credits. They save time and money!
  • Remember that we have pre-paid mailers available to make returning titles easier. These are only $4.75, hold four discs, and the postage never expires. If you wish to purchase one, please let us know when you place your pickup order.

For those who prefer it, we are still offering our Rental by Mail service (which is now serving 17 states!). Click Here for info on signing up for that program.

NG MAN-TAT (1952-2021)

Last week the great Hong Kong actor Ng Man-tat passed away due to liver cancer. Though he was a versatile actor with many great dramatic performances to his name (including his Hong Kong Film Awards nominated role in A Moment of Romance), he was best known for comedic roles. He co-starred with Stephen Chow dozens of times, starting in 1983 on the TV series The Legend of the Condor Heroes and finally in 2001’s Shaolin Soccer. He continued acting in movies up through this year.

Of Ng’s nearly 200 credits, here are the ones we have available for rent. Due to translation discrepancies and alternate titles it’s possible we missed some, so feel free to call if there’s something else you’re looking for.

Note the formats – most are on regular DVD, but a few require a region free player. Two of them we only have on laserdisc! We also noted a few that are dubbed rather than subtitled.
