For Baltimore film nerds, a huge void was left once Video Americain closed in 2014. Not long before that some of the video store’s former employees floated the idea of starting a nonprofit video library to offer a similarly eclectic selection of movies. Then not much happened. Fast forward to this year and the nonprofit, now known as Beyond Video, came back with a concrete plan to rehab the old Reptilian Records space on North Howard Street and a crowdfunding campaign to help acquire even more titles. We’re looking forward to having a collection of movies that easily tops whatever’s new in the Netflix queue and a staff of film enthusiasts to steer us in the right direction.
