Scarecrow was just nominated for a 2015 Stranger Genius Award! They threw a secret taco party for us and everything!
When we launched our Scarecrow Project kickstarter last August, we got tons of wonderful press about our mission and our amazing store. Here’s just a sample of the terrific articles written back then:
26 Hard-To-Find Movies That Remind Us Why VHS, DVD, And LaserDisc Still Matter, a great piece from Buzzfeed about a bunch of rare titles you can only find at a video store.
One of the best articles ever written about Scarecrow and its mission comes from the good folks at Vice Motherboard: This Legendary Video Store is Going Out of Business to Save Itself
We’re particularly fond of the way that piece summed up our mission:
“The store isn’t just looking for money to keep DVD rentals flowing through the return bin, though. Its ambition is to become less of a store and something more like a B-movie counterpart to the American Film Institute or the UCLA Film & Television Archive—an organization that preserves and brings attention to the films that need it most.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Below you’ll find a rundown of ALL the great stuff folks have written about us lately.
