Scarecrow Video Turns 25!!

There's been a lot of press lately about the future of Scarecrow Video, so much so that it threatens to overshadow one important fact...

Scarecrow is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this December!!

We’re setting aside our current worries and pulling out all the stops for a weekend long celebration starting Friday, December 6th and ending Sunday, December 8th.  Attached is the press release providing highlights from Scarecrow’s history and detailing all the festivities for the weekend.

In the midst of our struggle to keep this Seattle landmark around, we invite one and all to join us in celebrating all of our achievements in the last 25 years – and our continued hope for another 25 years to come.

The weekend of festivities will commence on Friday, December 6th and run through the weekend until Sunday the 8th.


We'll be having sales:

  • 50% off all Used Sale titles!
  • All VHS and Laserdiscs will ber $1.00!
  • Our Criterion Holiday Sale is ongoing -- $3 Off every Criterion titles in the store!
  • Markdowns on lots of Out-of-Print titles and Boxed Sets
  • 10-Rental Prepaid Packs for $25 (Save $2.00 per rental)!

On top of all that, we'll be having a late-fee amnesty all weekend long. If you haven't been in for a while because you had a late fee, come back in, update your account and rent something and we'll wipe the slate clean (unless you need to replace a movie you never returned!). 

And as if that isn't enough, EVERY CUSTOMER will get ONE FREE RENTAL. Even if it's the only thing you rent, it's on us! That includes New Releases and even box sets!

There'll also be raffles and giveaways, on-going screenings of our favorite movies, a customer-curated special rental section, and even a Scavenger Hunt!

Come celebrate with us! What was the first film you ever rented at Scarecrow? Come and tell us, and share your favorite Scarecrow memories. Haven’t heard of Scarecrow or been in yet?
