Last week I promised myself (and you guys) I would compile a list of movie stores in the Poughkeepsie area. Using the Internet, of course, and the good old-fashioned Yellow Book, I formed a list consisting of about 6 Blockbusters and about 4 of the “other” movie store.
Not being satisfied with these results, my boyfriend and I got in the car today and drove around, through and above the city; we would have gone under if we could. Our drive took us out Rt. 44 to Pleasant Valley.
The “other” store was everywhere; some not so cleverly disguised as tanning salons.
Poughkeepsie, I don’t know what to say.
I will not give up.
If anyone has any information leading to the discovery of an independent movie store in the greater Poughkeepsie area; preferably one with a smelly carpet, handmade wooden shelving units, and all of the 39 Giovanni Ribisi flicks in existence, please leave a comment. I promise not to hold it against you if it turns out to be an adult video store.
