If you don’t feel like hitting the city but want to watch a DVD in your rental apartment, this is where all your dreams come true. Ciclic is an apparently small video club store in the best tradition: maybe you don’t want to have them all at home, but it’s nice to know where to find the series, documentary or funny movie that you where longing to see.
Yes, it’s “arty” and cinema lovers will be very fond of the collection organized by author, but they also have a great commercial cinema area and a big space devoted to children’s movies.
Recent additions to the catalog are for 24 hours rent only. Other movies, documentaries and tv series are for a 48 hour period. You can also ask for flat rates or season specials… they change constantly.
I have many reasons to go there and one in particular: the people working at Ciclic love movies and like their job, thus are have to give you a good opinion on most of the movies displayed. Usually, they have great music playing, they sell ice cream and movie posters.
Their system warns you when you are renting a movie for the second time – great device for people who forget. The store is only open in the afternoons, but you can deposit your movies in a mailbox at anytime of the day.
