BVFCC a sponsor of Magnetic Fest 2 this Sat., Apr. 29, at Lyric Hall

Best Video Film & Cultural Center is one of the sponsors of Magnetic Fest 2, a VHS tape Swap Meet and Celebration this Saturday, Apr. 29, at Lyric Hall in Westville. Magnetic Fest 2 will be held from 11 AM to 4 PM and is free.

Vendors set up to trade and/or sell movies on VHS (and other formats), and also sell and trade posters, toys, zines, books, music, stickers, buttons, patches, and more. We also conduct VHS screenings on the stage of Lyric Hall Theater in our specially-designed Magnetic Fest VHS Lounge.

Staff members Rob Harmon and Molly Capobianco will staff a BVFCC table with VHS for sale, buttons, and t-shirts. Come by and say hello and get some rare VHS tapes!

By popular demand: BVFCC adds new return box at Lyric Hall in Westville

Graham Honaker installs new return box at Lyric Hall.

Ever since Edge of the Woods Market asked us to remove the return box we had there, customers from the Westville area—as well as customers from Woodbridge and other towns easily accessible to Whalley Ave. from the Wilbur Cross Parkway—have been inquiring as to the possibility of getting a new return location on that side of town.

Well, now we have it! Thanks to John Cavaliere, who owns the historic Lyric Hall on Whalley Ave., we now have a new location where Best Video Film & Cultural Center patrons can return their movies. Lyric Hall—a restored vaudeville-era theater and venue for Cavaliere’s antiques restoration business—is located at 827 Whalley Ave., New Haven, 06515. Phone (203) 389-8885.

Thanks also to Best Video Film & Cultural Center employees Graham Honaker and Brian Johnson (of Johnaker art productions) for making and installing the box.

Rent more great movies from Best Video Film & Cultural Center and return them to the new box at Lyric Hall!
