VisArt Video is a locally owned, independent video store.  We have around 30,000 titles (but who’s counting?) which means that there’s a lot to look at when you come in the store.  To make it easier to find stuff you like, you may find it helps to know more about some of the sections in our store.  Periodically we’ll post information about some gems in a particular section of the store that you might not know about.  Meanwhile, here’s a partial list of some of the sections you’ll find when you come in:
