Take a stroll down the Armchair Theatre video store’s center aisle. You know the one. It’s where you went when mom or dad or whoever lugged you to the strip mall on a Saturday afternoon turned their back. These are the titles you wanted to see, but never did. Or maybe you did and forgot all about them.
Regardless, that center aisle is now memory lane, so travel back with us as we pluck a title from the shelf and ask, do you remember…?
