At the Film Shop we recognise the changing trends in film viewing habits and concede that a new era is dawning. It has surprised us in many ways that we have still survived after 15 years, considering that even back in 1996, people were forecasting the new dawn of digital downloads and it was confidently predicted that within 5 years, viewing films using a physical format would vanish forever. Even now, that great moment of "Convergence" (When computer technology connects seamlessly with modern TV screen technology) has yet to fully materialize.
It is a testament, for the most part, to the loyalty of our customers, many of whom used Lovefilm and/or downloads, who come back to us, still attracted by the shop browsing experience, the possibility of human interaction and exchange of views that often occurs and not least, the formidable stock of new, old, obscure, artful and surprising films that we have in store.
We want to move with the times and repay your loyalty and support in these dark days.
Dark days are made for film viewing however and within the next few weeks, The Film Shop will be offering Unlimited Rentals for £15 a month- 3 at a time, as many times as you like.
