To honor the birthdays of three highly devoted staffers, one loyal Viva Video customer is buying everyone a round! Anyone coming in to Viva Video, the Philadelphia area’s sole video rental boutique, on Saturday, March 18th (11:00 am – 10:00 pm) will be entitled to one FREE DVD/Blu-ray/VHS RENTAL courtesy of our biggest fan, who wants those not yet acquainted with the film-loving community that blossoms within our walls to experience firsthand the incredible selection and forgotten joys of the brick and mortar video store. Our vast inventory includes the latest in Hollywood/independent/foreign releases, classics of days gone-by, and esoteric cult gems waiting to be discovered. We also have myriad titles unavailable on Internet streaming platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, and FilmStruck. This promotion will be available to existing clientele, as well as first-time patrons.

If you’re new to Viva Video and interested in taking advantage of the promotion, signing up for an account is easy, quick, and free. Our requirements include providing a driver’s license as proof of ID and a phone number in case we need to get in touch. Furthermore, a credit card must be kept on file in case a rental item is lost, damaged, or stolen, in addition to managing unpaid late fees. Those who don’t wish to place a credit card on file may rent by placing a $60 cash deposit on file.
