Burning Paradise: The Sequel

Just in time for Day of the Dead, recently deceased movie rental mecca Burning Paradise Video has risen from the grave. After a frantic month in limbo, the store has reopened at its newest digs, 120 Yale SE (one block south of UNM). You can still go there to rent the best in cult/alternative/foreign/mainstream DVDs. But now you can also purchase just about anything in the store. Burning Paradise’s new business model is as a buy/sell/trade DVD store, meaning tons of fresh merchandise every week. The new location is larger than previous iterations, allowing for a welcome expansion of movie-related posters, toys, zines and T-shirts. If you wanna come check out the groovy new location, this Friday might be a good time. Starting at 7 p.m. on Nov. 4, the store will host a grand reopening party, complete with free snacks, live entertainment from local techno-punks Vertigo Venus and all kinds of super deals. Hit it up on Facebook for more details.

The Day the Movies Died

Movie lovers, I’ve got some sad news to deliver. Burning Paradise Video, Albuquerque’s only source for independent, foreign and cult cinema on DVD, is closing its doors. While we’re sad to see Burning Paradise go, we can at least give it a proper send-off. The store will be liquidating all of its stock, starting this week. Grab a piece of Albuquerque cinema history by purchasing a copy of your favorite Italian zombie movie, French vampire flick or American grindhouse classic.
