Revue Video tells it straight
Revue Video on the Danforth—one of Toronto’s last great independent video stores—shut down earlier this month after two decades of providing Riverdalians with access to the best and most obscure foreign, indie, and documentary films. Apparently tired of answering questions about whether the store would re-open, and certainly bitter about something—maybe the Shoppers Drug Mart soon to open across the street—the store owners left a note on the front door about their future intentions, a rather blunt variation on the more typical “back in 5 minutes.” Although today’s weather is a good candidate for hell blowing over, it’s not quite cold enough for the freezing action required to revive the store.
Visible for all to see earlier this week, the sign disappeared sometime before this morning.
