Be Kind Movie Vault opens in New Milford below The Hunt boutique

by Stewart Cole

The Gaylordsville resident hopes to offer something “a little more curated” to movie buffs with his new video store, Be Kind Movie Vault, which opened Oct. 24 on the lower level of The Hunt, a boutique at 20 Bank St.

“What I’m trying to do with Be Kind Movie Vault is for the average person who comes to see movies, there’s always going to be one or two discs or tapes that people look at and go, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe it. that you’ve got that, that’s the thing I’ve been looking for,” Cross said. “You’ll find something you’ve always been looking for in the format you’ve been looking for.”

Along with browsing movies on DVD, VHS and Blu-ray, customers can check out the array of movie trading cards, posters and other finds on display in the video store. Many of the movies sold in the Be Kind Movie Vault come from Cross’s collection and his searches through estate sales and thrift stores.

Customers can also check out The Be Kind Movie Vault Instagram pagee for more findings.

The Be Kind Movie Vault is open from 10am. until 4 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, from 10 am. until 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and closed on Monday.

Rediscovering the movies

Cross said he considers himself a proud member of the “wonderful nerds, geeks and weirdos” who like to spend hours browsing video stores.

He said he does a lot of hunting for VHS tapes and DVDs at thrift stores, flea markets and stores like The Archive in Bridgeport. The best trips, Cross said, are the ones where movies are rediscovered.
