My friend, who was a student at the University of Illinois before I was, couldn't stop raving about a video rental store located on campus called That's Rentertainment. When I began my education at U of I, that was one of the first places I checked out.
First of all, the location is great, right on the heart of campus. Easy to find and is within walking distances of everything on campus.
At first, I was a little thrown off by the size of the store. It's small, cramped, slightly cluttered. It seemed disorganized. I had a little bit of trouble at first locating what I want, but once you figure out where all the sections are, it's easy to handle.
They're selection is enormous. Its hard to believe that they could fit so many movies in such a small space. There's old movies, new releases, foreign films, television shows, b-movies, documentaries, independent films, anime... And the prices are very good. They have $1 specials virtually every day (excluding Friday and Saturday, which are peak days). Wednesdays are 2 for 1. Normal pricing is $2.50 per rental, or 3 rentals for $6.00, which in itself isn't bad at all.
