What's New and Different?

A lot of you are probably wondering what, if anything, is different about the way we're going to rent and sell movies now. Well, for the most part, not much will change at all on a cosmetic level. Scarecrow will still rent and sell videos at the same rates we have for years. A few small things are going to change up though.

First, the Scarecrow Daily Deals are now going to be for Members Only (we'll get to memberships in a moment). That means you'll have to have a membership in order to get 2-for-1 Music section rentals on Monday. Don't worry, though, the regular store-wide 2-For-1 Wednesday still goes for everybody, so feel free to stack up as usual.

Also regarding 2-For-1 Wednesday, we will now gladly accept your phone renewals at the 2-for-1 Rate! Previously we asked you to come back into the store, but no longer. Call us up and still get your deal.

We can now accept tax-deductible donations. We're working on a way for you to do this on our website, but for now, if you'd like to make a donation, please visit the store.

Soon we'll be adding Volunteers to our roster! Stay tuned for more information on those opportunities!

One final bit: We're no longer renting Video Games. Sorry folks. They were expensive to bring in and didn't generate much revenue. 

OK, on to Memberships!

As you have now no doubt heard a dozen times, The Scarecrow Project is a non-profit collective, solely dedicated to the stewardship of the world-renowned Scarecrow Video. This includes preserving, maintaining and enlarging it's vast library, and ensuring that the collection remains intact and available to the general public through rentals and on-site screenings. It's our responsibility to be a resource to the community and to nurture film and metia arts and film culture in the Northwest and Beyond.

To that end, memberships are the cornerstone to the Scarecrow Project's ability to operate a collection of this magnitude. Your generous support helps ensure that these movies will remain available to you and others now and in the future. The Memberships are valid for one year in all cases.

It's important to note that these membership tiers, which offer special benefits to members as a thank-you for their support, are NOT the same as a rental account. You DO NOT need a Scarecrow Membership to rent from us, just a standard rental account.
