About Us

Video Wasteland started out as a collector’s video service in the late 80’s.

In the Spring of 1993, with more and more independently owned video stores being sucked up by the sterile, uncaring and totally in-it-for-the-money video chain stores, we officially opened a rent-by-mail video service that specialized in rare, out-of-print, and hard to find “Drive-In” era horror and exploitation films. We created a niche service for horror movie fans that was often copied but never duplicated.

Soon after we opened our rental service we added movie memorabilia, posters, and assorted collectibles to what we offered and have since become one of the leading sources for original 60’s and 70’s horror and monster movie posters (at some of the best prices around, I might add.)

In September of 2000 we held our first Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo and kicked off the Wasteland version of a movie convention in grand style by presenting the first ever “Dawn of the Dead” cast and crew reunion. In the years following our first show, we have firmly established the Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo as one of the leading movie and collectible conventions in the country. And never one to rest on our reputation, we will continue to do our best to stay ahead of the pack with every one of our future shows as well.

Currently, our once mighty rental service has gone the way of every other “mom and pop” store in the country, and has been shut down by ridiculous postal rate hikes and the general laziness of a race of people that are willing to click on the TV and pretty much watch anything presented to them (while their free will is taken over by the painfully obvious encouragement that blatant stupidity will translate into some sort of reward if only you can hold out and actually be the one idiotic enough to claim it.)

Now all these years later, and with a little change in name: From Video Wasteland to Cinema Wasteland, (in order to better define our mix of products to the casual observer), we are still hanging in there as your number one source for everything from Aliens to Zombies. You never know what you’ll uncover while searching through our selection of posters, autographs, collectibles etc - and in the Spring of 2004, we added a second Movie and Collectible Convention to our roster.

Stick with Cinema Wasteland. After twenty years in this business, we promise that you’ll enjoy the ride!
