Brockley Video Crisis!
Homeview, the independent dvd/video hire shop in Brockley, is closing in the next couple of weeks. I guess the writing's on the wall for shops like these, with so many people ordering DVDs through web-based rental services, or downloading movies. Still this has been a good place to browse and chat about films, something that is lost online, and Homeview has always had a great selection of obscure art house stuff, foreign language films, classic oldies etc. These are now being sold off in the closing down sale, and the space is due to become a betting shop. Just what we need.
