Movie Madness is a video rental store still alive and well in Portland. Their selection was massive and do worse enough to please just about anyone.
Their store is also a small museum with dozens of authentic pieces on display from famous films throughout history. We saw a mock building that was used in Blade Runner AND Ghostbusters, the bar of soap from the Fight Club promotional and cover art, an alien warhead from James Cameron’s Alien, one of the three ears created for David Lynch’s Blue Velvet, one of the mugwumps from Cronenberg’s Naked Lunch, an alien prop from Mars Attacks, outfits worn in Westside Story, pants worn by Frank Morgan in The Wizard of Oz, the bust used in Marvin’s death scene in Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, a skeleton from the opening of Wes Craven’s Wishmaster, one of the prior knives from Wes Craven’s Scream, and so much more. If I lived here, I’d totally get a membership.
