Iconic Video Shop and Film Paradise

alternative text

A true icon of Christchurch, Alice in Videoland carries a standout collection of arthouse, foreign, cult, classic, documentary and hard-to-find titles on VHS and DVD. Even in an age in which downloading music and movies is popular, shops like Alice in Videoland are just valuable as ever (if not more so). Every title in Alice in Videoland's library is hand-picked by Alice's movie mavens after rigorous research of film archives, consultation of movie critics, and from valuable recommendations from Alice's customers. Alice in Videoland strives to carry artistically important films and bypasses much of the "cinematic mediocrity and questionable mainstream releases" in order "to focus on the good, the great, the rare and the unusual". Quite simply Alice in Videoland has titles that you can't find in a typical video shop or online, making it a popular spot for true movie buffs and where you will most certainly find a film worth watching.

It's treat to pop in and view the selection at Alice in Videoland, but if you're more into having home delivery of movies, Alice offers courier delivery of DVD's as well. Alice in Videoland is located at the historic corner of High Street and Tuam (in fact the corner plot just in front of Alice's is the site of Chirstchurch's first public well). Opening hours are listed below, and further information and a listing of films can be found on Alice in Videoland's website.
