Movies Worth Seeing, for 25 years arguably Atlanta's most exhaustively complete video and DVD rental store, has announced that it's going out of business. An email announcement explained that the Virginia-Highlands store will continue to rent movies and TV series during its DVD liquidation sale (beginning at noon today), and did not reveal when it would close its doors for good. As the press release says, "After 25 glorious years, MOVIES WORTH SEEING is going out of business. Thanks, everyone. It's been a great ride!"

I was just there last month, renting a disk for my "Archer" cover story, so it's loss hits close to home. What are we supposed to do if we need the see a Kurosawa classic on a Criterion disc, and we can't wait days for Netflix to arrive?

It's a depressing time to be a longtime Atlanta media consumer: last week Borders Books announced that its Buckhead store, the chain's longtime Atlanta flagship, is slated to close in May.
