One of the last video rental shops in the UK turned into Britain's smallest cinema

2018-05-16 16:56
20th Century Flicks has kept going due to the dedication of its staff despite the rising popularity of Netflix and illegal streaming sites. The tiny film rental shop houses the UK’s largest collection of movies with around 20,000 stashed on the shelves. Last year it produced only £160 profit after wages but owner David Taylor, 38, found a way to boost business. Using his amateur carpentry skills, he worked on a micro-cinema which seats 18 film-goers. He describes it as “like a jukebox” with punters browsing the shelves to choose what they want to screen.
