The Movie Studio, an independent supplier of home videos, opened its doors in 1997 and was a fixture on 109 Street for 18 years.
Known for its massive collection of movies, flexible late fees, free popcorn and friendly staff, The Movie Studio was always on the leading edge of technology successfully transitioning its library from VHS to DVDs to Blue-Ray. But the switch to high speed internet and on demand movies rendered local video stores obsolete and The Movie Studio closed its doors forever in May 2015.
The Movie Studio sign was made by Blanchett Neon and featured a distinctive font using somewhat rare purple and green neon.
