EVERYTHING TO ENTERTAIN YOU: THE STORY OF VIDEO HEADQUARTERS is a documentary about one of the greatest video stores in the country: Video Headquarters in Keene, New Hampshire. The store existed for 32 years, from 1983-2015. It's owner, Ken McAleer, was a prominent figure among independent video store owners, and this documentary examines how one man, with a single video store far outside the film hubs of New York and L.A., can have such a big impact on the industry. Voted the best video retailer in the country in 1997, the store not only served as a cultural institution in southwest New Hampshire, but Ken McAleer served prominent roles in trade organizations and buying groups to help bolster independent stores around the country. This documentary is as much about Ken and his contributions to the industry as it is about the store. A labor of love from a first-time filmmaker and former employee, this nostalgic look back at the video store era includes interviews with Ken McAleer, former employees, customers, comic artist and former video store owner, Stephen Bissette, and a treasure trove of archival audio, video, photographs, and documents from the store.
