If you are in a town with little by way of cultural attractions, one can usually hope for a good video and/or music store that will supply lots of rare, little known, and foreign titles. Unfortunately, Mike's doesn't fill that role in State College. Really the only thing it has going for it is that is cheaper than Blockbuster. At $1.49 a night, it is a very good deal since you usually want to watch the movie that night anyway. Otherwise, I am very disappointed by the selection of videos.
The music selection, however, is decent (this refers to a different Mike's location). It is a little skewed towards some obscure punk music, but they do have a nice listening wall that fills out a nice variety. The used music section is nothing to brag about.
