Best Video Store

B-Ware Video and Books

The East Side may have the art museum, the Cinematheque, and most of the decent bookstores, but the West Side has B-Ware. Score one for culture! Not the highbrow kind, but the low-budget, swamp-monster kind. One of the few video emporiums in the city that's not part of a franchise vying for world domination, B-Ware's got your cannibal flicks, your Czech art films, your Boris Karloff masterpieces. Owners Eddie and Natalie Wille manage to keep the place going on a microscopic budget, and from a safe distance behind the counter, they might even listen to you deconstruct Michael Landon's star turn in I Was a Teen-Age Werewolf.
