The building I was in didn't have the extra space but others in our district did. They now also offer because of a partnership with a pizza joint (if it's not their own that they have started lol) to have it to where at select locations order pizza and rentals online and have them delivered. I like that idea lol.

It's funny that you mention that. I was just at the Family Video in my town and they just started renovations to put in a pizza place. Much as I hate Family Video's prices, the convenience of having food and movies brought to me is awful tempting.
