Scarecrow Video (once a Wallyhood sponsor) has completed its transition from a privately owned company to The Scarecrow Project, a non-profit (see earlier article on their Kickstarter campaign to help fund the switch), and are holding a Grand Re-Opening event to celebrate the move:
In August of this year, The Scarecrow Project, a new non-profit, launched a Kickstarter campaign in order raise the funds necessary to take-over the stewardship of the world-renown Scarecrow Video. With over 1800 donors pledging their support either online or in the store, this crowd-funding campaign was an overwhelming success. Now, with the plan in place and the funds secured, this dream is becoming reality.
This Saturday, October 18th, begins the next chapter in Scarecrow’s history and we invite movie lovers everywhere to join us in celebration! In a serendipitous stroke, this Saturday is also the 4th Annual International Video Store Day – a day set aside to show extra love and support to all our favorite video stores. As if this isn’t enticement enough, here are a few more reasons why Scarecrow Video should be your destination this Saturday:
- 50% off all Criterion titles! (No fooling!)
- Additional sales on New & Used titles
- Box Art Bingo
- Geeks Who Drink video trivia rounds
- Chocolati temptations
- Music, prizes, giveaways and lots more!
Come join in the festivities! Whether you are a long-time supporter or just discovering Scarecrow Video for the first time, come be a part of the beginning of the future of this world famous, one-of-a-kind film experience that can only be found here in Seattle!
