seriously, the worst part of our moving out of the burgh is the total lack of dreaming antedness in our lives. my partner and i are big movie watchers, and we love everything -- from trashy hollywood flicks (particularly ones with boobs and 'splosions) to them foreign ones with subtitles an'at to indie to rom coms to classics to cheesy. not only did the dreaming ant offer us virtually the entire gamut of our movie tastes, but the staff was always ready and willing to offer suggestions as to what we might like to try when we were stuck for ideas. kind of makes you nostalgic for the old days when ALL local business really took the time to get to know their customers don't it? 'cause the dreaming ant isn't just an amazing dvd renatl spot, it's an incredible local business that doesn't just SERVE its community -- the dreaming ant IS A PART of it.
as for the rental fee -- you really can't beat $1/day, walking into the store to browse for the movie you knew you wanted and the several others you didn't know you wanted before you walked in. not to mention the same day service (yea we use netflix now that we are out of state but we HATE waiting for the next deliver! ugh!). and oh yes -- the dreaming ant also offers a variety of discounts that can help shave off a few dollars here and there for the financially conscious (or the movie addicts, depending on which one fits your bill!).
seriously i could rave about the dreaming ant all day long, so i'll just stop here with JUST. RENT. ANT.
Pros: only the best dvd rental shop this side of the mississippi
Cons: no mail order!
