Film Club

Yep, a DVD rental store in the era of streaming — and local film buffs love it.

In the era of streaming, you might be surprised to learn there is still a DVD store of all thing in Sydney's inner city. Nevertheless, Film Club has cemented itself as one of Darlinghurst's most beloved shops. Rather than stocking any old new release like a 00s Blockbuster, Film Club's purpose is to provide a place where one can go to find those films that are unfindable.

Owner Ben Kenny specialises in finding copies of arthouse, foreign and indie films, and also holds an unbelievably impressive range of classics, such as silent movies from the 20s and cult films from the 60s. This shop is nirvana for film buffs, and the friendly folk behind the desk are happy to chat movies to you all day long.
