About the Vidiot


The Vidiot is operated by Scott Shepherd, Kira Dunn and Liz Araza . Father and daughters.

Scott started the store in 1978, never dreaming that the store would still be going strong.

Kira has come along for the ride and also shares her dads love of film.

Liz has just joined the team to keep it all in the family.

Scott has a simple philosophy, he has never seen a film he wouldn’t own. This explains the wacky selection and almost rabid obsession with getting more titles.

This means that, unlike online services, our selection doesn’t shrink. It just gets more fun to drop in and peruse.

Thanks for all your support.
