BEST LOCAL ALTERNATIVE TO NETFLIX 

Videomania

Critics' Choice

We all know that Netflix did to independent video stores (and Blockbuster, for that matter) what Wal-Mart did to countless mom-and-pop businesses. But Videomania on Westport Road continues to hang tough in the streaming-video age. The shop, with its ubiquitous yellow awning, has survived since 1981, at least in part by focusing on a few niches. Sure, film nerds can watch many Criterion Collection titles on Hulu, but those don't come with the special features. Video-mania has a wall of Criterion titles, ranging from the obscure to, sigh, Armageddon. Similarly, the shop has staked a claim on LGBT movies and offers a large selection of hard-to-find titles. It also has Netflix beat in one genre: porn. We're not canceling Netflix, but we're still Videomania members.
