Not an individual movie post as such. But can anyone remember in 80's/90's going to a video rental shop and the movie you wanted being out on loan (usually Ghostbusters) and a little plastic triangle 'on loan' sign being slipped on plastic covers of VHS (or Betamax) case? Anyone got a picture of these, or know where I could get one? 👍

I used to ring up before I biked down. He was a nice guy and would hold the title back for me until I got there !

i remember reserving the popular stuff.... i also remember getting the last available copy of predator on opening weekend (my local used to get 4 or 5 copies of big titles) and holy shi-at did that blow away a very impressionable young me... :D
