Scarecrow Video was founded in 1988 by Rebecca Latsios and her husband George. They collaborated with their friend, John McCullogh, who would be a major factor in the store's success. The place was created for those who had a passion for film and wanted to take what they'd found and put it in a place where others could also enjoy these movies. This store is unique because it is filled with thousands of movies that most people wouldn’t even recognize. Hollywood-level celebrities have been spotted shopping there, one of the more notable ones being Quentin Tarantino.
In 1995, George was diagnosed with cancer. The doctor gave him a deadline on how long he had left, so George ended up going back home to Greece, where he lived for years after his predicted deadline. Recently, the store was in peril, as online streaming made a boom in the industry which almost put Scarecrow Video out of business. In an effort to save the store, John McCullough gave the store over to some of the employees who had previously worked there and put it in the public domain. Luckily, it is now a non-profit organization featuring one of the largest displays of videos with over 100,000 films. You can come and browse or even rent or buy movies from them. They are open every day except Mondays.
