Known for their massive collection of new and classic films, and knowledgeable staff, Circle Video opened it's doors in 1981 on Madison.  Located at the corner of Circle and Madison,  this independent stood up to Blockbuster Video which later opened on Harlem.

Circle Video accommodated the video needs of our community, even carrying 50 copies of Top Gun when it was released on VHS, and it remained sold out for three straight weeks.

In 1987, Circle Pizza opened and had a unique relationship to the Video store.  Customers could choose to carry out pizza and a movie, and have both delivered to their door for a in home theater experience and dinner.  
Forest Park was also home to All-Star Video, 7302 Madison; Blockbuster Video, 109 N Harlem and VCR Repair Xperts at 7221 Madison.
