i totally agree that more often than not, small video stores hardly ever stocked cult titles or forgotten films. There is such a small demand for such that they could never make money on them. So, when Corner Video opened back in 1983, it was such a departure from other video stores in just about every way. That's what made it unique.
Every Tuesday, Corner Video had a video rental special. 4 DVD rentals for $5. That's when i would catch up to some cult/drive-in films i had never seen and watched great ones over again. Tuesday nights were always my night off from work. i could kick back, drop in a movie, pop open a few brewski's and enjoy "crap movie night".
It will be damned hard to drive by that empty store on Tuesdays and NOT pull into their parking lot.
