Opened in 2002, The Video Underground initially sought to offer an alternative to the more traditional and mainstream world of Blockbuster-style video stores, which — oddly enough — don’t really exist anymore. Today, the VU specializes in independent, cult and foreign films, while still bringing in new releases, time-honored classics, and everything in between. We are dedicated to creating and maintaining a video store that reflects the Jamaica Plain community, the city of Boston, and the interests of our incredible customers.
Additionally, The Video Underground is your place for premium beverages, snacks, and more! Whether it’s a tea, coffee, espresso drink, smoothie or even just a fresh bag of popcorn or box of candy, we’ve got you covered and then some.
