    I am going to Philly this weekend to visit a friend. What are the dvd buying hot spots in the city? i know that TLA sells some stuff, and i have been to the TOWER there, but that is always a disappointment. And i did run across a small shelf in chinatown. Any of you locals know where to go? please let me know.

    Thanks
    Kyle

    There are no "special" DVD stores in the city; there's nothing that beats the selection and prices of most online stores. For music though, the Tower on Broad Street is very impressive. There is also a large Borders across the street.

    I'm in the Northeast Philadelphia area, but I do most of my DVD shopping at the usual spots: Best Buy (corner of Red Lion Road and Roosevelt Blvd.) or Circuit City (corner of Cottman and Bustleton Avenues).

    If you're going to be in the city 'proper', perhaps spend an afternoon at The Gallery. It's a fairly large mall located right by City Hall at Broad and Market. I haven't been down to South Street in quite some time, but I suspect there may be a few privately-owned (non-Tower, etc.) shops sprinkled about.

    And make you sure get a cheese steak from Pat's or Geno's. Jim's is a tourist steak! [​IMG]

    There's also Famous 4th Street (Deli and best damn cookies on the east cost) and The Pink Rose (amazing pastries) both on 4th and Bainbridge (one block over from South Street).

    As I told Kyle on his other thread of the same name: there really isn't much of what he is looking for in Philadelphia.

    Seth,

    I like your idea of turning the Gallery into a theater. I just hope that the Boyd gets fixed first (it's much closer to my house).

    So where do you live? I'm down on 24th and Delancey.

    i remember when the gallery was still a big hole in the ground.
    in the early 80's we used to hang down there when school was off.
    there was a taco stand in the food court that had TACO BURGER man that was good.

    also i never new....

    I'd go with Buddakan over Susanna Foo. Le Bec-Fin and Fountain are actually reasonably priced for lunches.
