The Black Dog Newsletter: Glory Days Edition!

This past Saturday would have marked the 25th anniversary of Black Dog Video on Cambie St! Seeing as it’s not a Black Dog anymore (go Video Cat!), it’s still an anniversary of sorts as I’ve doing this job for 25 years! I just wanted to say it’s been a pleasure to be serving up the finest in world cinema to you awesome folks for the past 25 years (175 in dog years or something like that)! And while the glory days of the video store have long faded, we’re still here doing our best to be a part of many of your lives. Cheers to you all.

Make sure that you check out our new website – blackdogvideo.ca – and podcast (stay tuned for a St. Patrick’s Day surprise)! It’s fun!
