Who We Are

Vidéothèque is greater Los Angeles’ premier source for DVD & Blu-Ray rentals and sales, emphasizing classic, international, documentary, rare and cult titles, as well as all the new releases you want and old favorites you hold dear. Since opening in March of 2003, Vidéothèque has steadily built its inventory into what is now a dense library of the extraordinary, a veritable cinematic playground for both hardcore film buffs and casual viewers alike.

What We Do

In addition to our unmatched library of over 30,000 unique DVD and Blu-ray titles for rent, we stock a dynamic selection of new and used DVDs and Blu-rays for sale, as well as cinema posters, t-shirts, LPs & CDs, film books, postcards, and more! We also buy and sell previously viewed discs. Just bring in your used discs in exchange for cash or store credit.

Secret To Our Success

In a rapidly changing home video market & myriad online delivery options, our business continues to thrive because we offer what the competition doesn’t: white glove service from knowledgeable staff & at-hand access to thousands of titles the other guys just don’t carry. But we’ve got them beat on the big releases too; Vidéothèque stocks many new releases weeks before Netflix and Redbox.

Store Hours
Our store is open 11AM-11PM daily, except Saturdays when we open an hour earlier at 10AM. We are open most holidays.
