I know all about Lovefilm and its ilk, but does anybody know of a bricks and mortar DVD rental store somewhere near Waterloo / Southwark tube stations? I was a member of Southbank video but it seems to have closed down.

Video South Bank on Lower Marsh has closed? There's a place on Tower Bridge Road and there's Blockbuster on Walworth Road, but neither is very convenient for you. I get my DVDs from Amazon Rental, and have been pleased with the choice, though of course it's not good if you suddenly fancy seeing a film.

Southbank Video on Lower Marsh was really good. It is such a shame it closed. I'm also at a bit of a loss as to where to get last minute videos. I haven't tried Amazon/Lovefilm etc as they seem to require quite a bit of forethought and I usually want to watch a video on the spur of the moment

Southbank Video closed *very* suddenly (within the 48 hours that I had a couple of DVDs rented!) A market trader who works nearby told me that they had been raided by the police, and at the same week on the news there was a report of a counterfeit DVD operation being shut down.

I live on the Cut and have the same problem since Southbank closed but I did notice walking past the library on Lower Marsh the other day that they do DVD rental so I'm going to sign myself up there, I don't imagine their collection will be huge but it's better than nothing.
