This September, after over 40 years, Victoria’s iconic Pic A Flic Video will close, imperiling its unrivaled collection of 25,000 cult classics, musicals, foreign films, sci-fi, short films, silent movies, independent animations and rare documentaries you can’t find anywhere else.
Video stores may be an endangered species, but losing this treasure trove of film history would be an extinction event! That’s why Push In’s host Joyce Kline and director Paul Ruta teamed up to interview film buff and Pic A Flic owner Kent Bendall on the store’s history, holdings, zany customers, and the future of the collection.
Gentle listeners, Pic a Flic needs an action hero to come to its aid. So if you’re out there, Atom Egoyan or Ryan Reynolds, or if you don’t want to see the collection terminated, James Cameron, or you want to foster parent it, David Foster, or you don’t want this good thing to come to an end, Nelly Furtado, please listen up!
