Video Store Day 2022!

Save the date! Join Scarecrow in store and online for the 12th annual International Independent Video Store Day, all day on Saturday, October 15! We’ll be celebrating all things physical media with the return of our amazing psychotronic sale and 50% off all used items.* We’ll also be streaming LIVE from 1-9PM PT on our YouTube channel.

Hosted by Scarecrow’s own Emalie Soderback and Matt Lynch (of VIVA PHYSICAL MEDIA fame), the livestream will feature:

– An interview with Academy-Award-winning director Andrea Arnold (FISH TANK, AMERICAN HONEY, COW)

– Emmy-nominated actor and fan-favorite comedian Martha Kelly (BASKETS, EUPHORIA, MARRIAGE STORY) in conversation about the ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS movies

– An exclusive interview with acclaimed actor/musician Will Oldham (OLD JOY, A GHOST STORY)

– Another all-new video collage from Collide-O-Scope

– Scarecrow vs. The Grand Illusion Cinema in a “Filmly Feud” rematch (with answers supplied by the Scarecrow Community!)

– Music sets from Maya Marie, Desi, and David Plell

– Short films, special guests, and plenty of surprises!

** Note that our interview with Will Oldham will not be archived…tuning in live is the ONLY way to catch it!**

(Programming subject to change. Follow Scarecrow Video on YouTube or check this page and social media channels for updates as the event approaches.)

Video Store Day is an opportunity to recognize the importance of film’s preservation via physical media AND to support Scarecrow’s work stewarding the world’s largest publicly available archive. Donations during Video Store Day are a crucial part of Scarecrow’s annual budget and we REALLY need the entire Scarecrow Community’s support. Make your Video Store Day gift NOW and leave a message for us to read on air during the livestream. VIVA PHYSICAL MEDIA!
