This sign makes no senseMarch 7th, 2012 by Steven Gardner
Is it that this really has “all” movies all the time? I seriously doubt that. You want to prove me wrong? Try to check out “Plan 9 from Outer Space” and the foreign film “The Revolt of Job,” to test that idea.
OK, so the notion of “all movies” might be silly of me to suggest, but I still don’t get it. Do some places let you rent certain movies only at certain times? I’ve never found that to be the case. If a video store was open and the video was in stock, they let you have it. That’s how video stores work. It’s not like those weasels at McDonald’s, who only serve you the greatest breakfast sandwich of all time (The Sausage McMuffin) during “breakfast” hours.
If you go into any video store and find “The Breakfast Club” or “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” even well after noon, they let you rent it. You can rent movies at hours when you can’t buy beer, but “Strange Brew” is not prohibited ever, even after 2 a.m.
I could have asked the owners of the store what they meant by this, but that would have required real reporting, something I wasn’t willing to do for a piece designed to highlight a sign that doesn’t make sense. If they want to call me and explain, I will listen.
And this sign isn’t going to stop me from stopping by sometimes when I take the road less traveled between Silverdale and Bremerton.
Seriously, they’re nice folks.
