#HCD2013

Home Cinema Day has landed! All over the country people are gathering together to participate in the Scalarama event where people organise their own viewings, invite their friends and share their day by tweeting, blogging or just singing about it…

Video City have come up with a list of staff-recommended double-bills for you to share with your chosen watching buddies – and we’ve thrown in a special offer to boot: rent any of these double-bills today and pay just £3. That’s 2 films for the price of 1, so get involved!
