About The VU

About The VU

The Video Underground was created to provide the Boston area with a true selection of independent film.
Beyond weekly updated new release titles, The Video Underground makes a concerted effort to stock titles
not readily found online or anywhere else. Researching films to add to our collection is a daily part of how the store operates
and sets us apart from other retailers and media outlets.

We also offer local artists the unique opportunity to put their work up on our shelves for rental!
If you are a filmmaker interested in making your project available for rent, please email or call us for more info.
A selection of both local and national indie films that have been featured
at past Boston and regional film festivals are also available for rent.

Offering DVD, BluRay, and a unique selection of VHS movies for rental and sale,
we are always looking to provide as many new and varied titles as possible,
and we will gladly place special customer orders upon request.

Perhaps more than anything else, though, we are committed to the notion that movies still matter,
regardless of the ways in which the film industry and distribution models have changed over the last decade.
The Video Underground exists and persists to serve as a cultural resource and community-minded business
in one of the most artistically active cities in the country.
