Greville Records: cult dvds in Prahran!

March 8, 2009

 

I’ve not been out to investigate, but I’ve had a hot tip that Greville Records have a healthy collection of cult kitsch dvds now.  Already famous for their large range of music on cd and vinyl, there has always been a reasonable dvd selection in this cornucopia of a small shop.  But now, apparently, the selection has increased in size like David Banner becoming the Hulk!!

Their website has a small selection of the DVDs available there, and is endearingly oldskool but a bit low on info.  So it may require a trek out to Chapel/Greville, which in itself can lend satisfaction of a number of other kinds… Comics R Us,  Charley Weaver, Chapel Tattoo, Chapel Street Bazaar… definitely worth the trek. 

From their website you could currently pick up the following cult kitsch titles:

WAR OF THE WORLDS 1954…$20 the original and best

EARTH vs flying saucers…1956..$20

THE TIME MACHINE..1960..Rod Taylor…the original masterpiece..20 bucks
