TLA Video, a mecca for lovers of art-house movies for more than 20 years, has announced it is closing its flagship store at 517 S. 4th Street.
In a statement released yesterday, TLA officials said the independent brick and morter store model had become “antiquated” with the rise of online rental companies and video-on-demand.
“It was an amazing 24-year run for our South Street store,” said TLA president Ray Murray, “but changing viewing habits of our customers (internet, cable, satellite, rental-by-mail, etc.) require us to change with the times.”
