No, Basement Films is NOT going out of business... Rather, we were recently gifted a huge donation of about 1300 VHS movies from a now defunct video rental store in Albuquerque.

We thought this would be a good opportunity to partner with 1415 Gallery on 4th street (1415 4th St SW 505.369.6528) and stage a two-day-only video rental store fundraiser. The fundraiser will be Black Friday November 29 and Saturday November 30 from 1pm-8pm. All 1300 VHS tapes will be for sale for $1 each and I'll betcha that if folks find multiple titles that interest them, we'll make insanely good deals! Come on out all you old-tech fans and satisfy your Tape Head hunger!
