"Rewind This!" premieres tonight at Trocadero Theater
PHILADELPHIA - June 17, 2013 (WPVI) -- Remember VHS tapes? For some, they are not a thing of the past, but a way of life.
Behold "Rewind This!" which premieres tonight (Monday, June 17th) at The Trocadero as part of The Awesome Fest, the 10-week festival celebrating the 1980's.
6abc.com got a chance to chat with the director Josh Johnson about his documentary that pays homage to all things videotape.
Johnson talks about the original format wars of Beta vs. VHS, the connection between tape collectors and the movie Titanic, and the frequency of Blockbuster Video stores shutting down.
So fix the tracking, hit play (unless the button fell off), and watch this preview of "Rewind This!"
Then see the documentary tonight at 8:00 p.m. at The Trocadero.
Be aware: the event is for ages 21+ as there are some mature themes in the movie.
