East Van's home of DVD & Blu Ray Rentals and Sales 



Situated on Commercial Drive in the heart of Vancouver's eccentric and eclectic Little Italy neighbourhood, Black Dog Video has become a part of the local flavour for hundreds of movie-loving people. 


We have been serving East Vancouver's DVD and Blu Ray needs since 2005 when owner Darren Gay, along with his brother Brian, opened their doors to the world. Originally home to a different shop called The Celluloid Drugstore, Black Dog Video moved in and became Darren's second location as well as his Cambie Street shop. Fast forward to today and Black Dog Video is the only video store left standing in East Vancouver. Darren sold his original Cambie Street shop in 2020. 


Black Dog offers the city’s best selection of films from around the world, rare and hard to find films and many not found on any streaming platforms.


We offer thousands of DVD and Blu Ray titles to rent and purchase, swag and movie memorabilia are all in store. We also host live shows, comedy nights, charity functions and podcasts. 


It’s been a fun ride these last 25 years for Darren and his staff, some of whom have been there since day one. We have survived a fire, a flood, Blockbuster and Netflix. Black Dog Video presses on boldly into the future!


It just goes to show YOU CAN'T KEEP A GOOD DOG DOWN!
