The efforts of Best Video Film & Cultural Center (BVFCC) to purchase and maintain Best Video as an archive of film and a venue for cultural events was the subject of a report on July 16 by WNPR reporter Diane Orson. Orson interviewed Hank Hoffman, store assistant manager and president of BVFCC. Hoffman is responsible for booking the music in the Performance Space.
Hoffman is quoted in the report:
“The video business has obviously gone through major changes,” he said. “And it’s not possible to maintain a video store on a profitable basis. If it was just a Tommy K’s or Blockbuster it would make sense just to close the store. But this is a place for people to gather, to talk movies, to meet their neighbors, to find out what’s going on in the arts.”
