   Eddie Brandt's Saturday Matinee
In Los Angeles, there are video stores for film geeks (Santa Monica’s Vidiots), and there are video stores for geeks. You don’t go to Eddie Brandt’s Saturday Matinee when you want to rent Spiderman 2 or Wedding Crashers. But if you want to spend the weekend watching Buster Keaton shorts or old episodes of In Search Of with Leonard Nimoy, you need look no further. As an archive, Eddie Brandt’s is almost awe-inspiring in the breadth of their collection—their documentary section alone has over 5,000 titles. They also have an extensive library of television series episodes, from the dawn of television to the present, many never before released on video. Here’s the catch—they’re almost all on VHS, and they aren’t technically available to rental. They are available for free—like you’d loan a friend—along with a “real” rental. So sit back and enjoy those old episodes of Wonder Woman or The Six Million Dollar Man. But after, check out a classic film like Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Five Easy Pieces. It’ll make the guilty pleasures seem less guilty.
