Video Underground - Jamaica Plain

PlainVideo Underground opened in 2002. Located in Jamaica Plain, on Centre Street. Video Underground seeks to offer an alternative to the more traditional and mainstream world of Blockbuster-style video stores. We specialize in independent, cult and foreign films, maintaining a weekly updated new-release section, as well as offering a strong local and nationally-made indie film section.

Our video store is not organized like your average video store: our sections span far beyond the average confines of DRAMA and COMEDY. At Video Underground, you will find categories like the perennial favorites DRUGS & BOOZE and SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIRT, as well as MEDIA MELTDOWN, COMICS & SUPERHEROS, DOGME FILMS, CANNES/SUNDANCE, COPS & CRIMINALS, POLITICAL and AS SEEN ON TV just to name a few.

We are dedicated to creating a video store that reflects the Jamaica Plain community and are very receptive to customer requests! If you are looking for a particular title or genre, please tell us and we will do our best to fulfill your request if the title is available.

Please email if you would like to have your film projects available for rent at the VU!

This is it! Everything you could want from a video store. Staff rocks and the selection is everything. Indies, oldies, rare finds, and most of the new releases. And worth the drive if you do not live down in JP, easy to get to from Broookline or Downtown.
