"The best video store in Seattle? No, the world." --Not For Tourists Seattle 2009

  • Media

From its passionate founder George Latsios and former owners Carl Tostevin & Mickey McDonough to its new status as a non-profit archive, Scarecrow has existed with one vision: to bring people and film together. It began with a few hundred tapes in the back of a record store, and for more than 30 years its devoted caretakers have gradually accumulated the largest independently owned video and physical media library in the country, currently boasting over 145,000 titles. We have also been a hub in the local film scene, providing a knowledgeable and passionate staff to offer all who visit Scarecrow a unique experience. This passion for film has rippled out into the greater Puget Sound community as Scarecrow devotedly supports local film organizations, promotes film screenings, and brings filmmakers from all walks of life into town.

The internet, video-on-demand, and high-definition formats have changed the landscape, offering greater access to all forms of entertainment. Our focus is to complement those changes in ways only we can by providing access to not only what is available from mainstream sources, but to rare, out-of-print, and foreign and independent films, many of which are available nowhere else. As Scarecrow moves forward into its next chapter, we are developing new and innovative ways to engage with the community and continue to be a vital part of Seattle.
