A family-owned video rental store in Austin, Texas specialized in foreign, cult and classic films from 1986 to 2020.

The mid-’80s was the peak of the VCR era. All of a sudden, watching movies at home became a part of everyone’s lives. Austin’s Vulcan Video survived the transition from VHS to DVD and even outlived the reign of Blockbuster. When DVDs gave way to streaming, there were still many films only available on DVD; you were not able to access them digitally or on streaming sites.

It took on the slings and arrows of Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services that replaced video stores, but it could not survive the coronavirus.  The Vulcan was a hub for those who loved to hang out and talk movies. They started as a part of a poster store, Movie Art and after two years they became Vulcan Video on 29th Street, near campus. Later it moved to South Austin at Elizabeth, and finally Russell Drive.

But that was the end. And now, we remember Vulcan Video with this vintage design.
