All About the Aro Catalogue

The Aro catalogue holds a comprehensive choice of contemporary, classic and curious cinema including a significant selection of exclusive titles.

Catalogue Search

Searching by keyword

When using the keyword search, try variations.  For example, if searching for films about boxing try ‘boxer’ as well as ‘boxing’.

The best way to find an old favourite is to use our catalogue search (at the top of every screen).

You can choose to search for a Film (title), Director, Actor, or Keyword. A keyword search takes in film reviews and synopses, so you can find authors, places, topics, etc.


Rental Lounge

What would you recommend?

Aro Favourite

Reserved for the true classics of their genre, other outstanding films and more than a few hidden gems.


Films of distinction in their genre that we think (or have on good authority) are worthy of your precious time and money.

The Rental Lounge is dedicated to helping you discover great films. Here you’ll discover something old, something new and something you never knew you needed to see.

Whether browsing New Releases or Courier Rental, the Rental Lounge displays hand-selected contemporary releases, new catalogue additions, and classic films that are available for the first time on DVD.

New Releases

The New Release section showcases the latest films available to rent by visiting The Aro St. Video Shop.

The Rental Lounge opens with an All Genre view of the latest titles on DVD, as well as a spotlighting additions to our back catalogue. You can also use our rental calendar to get a sneak peek at what’s Coming Soon and (for the completist) a full list of all Recent Releases.

You can also browse notable new releases across all of the key genres (Action-Adventure, Classics, Comedy, Cult, Documentary, Drama, etc.).

Change ‘channels’

Using the option at the top of each genre screen you can view New Releases or only the films that are available for Home-Delivery.


Whether out-of-town or across-town, you can have quality film delivered to your door.

Any film that displays a green [rent] button is available for home delivery (that’s about 99.8% of the films in our catalogue).

The Home-Delivery section opens with an All Genre view of films that are now available for online ordering. You can expand on these choices by selecting a genre from the menu (on the left-hand panel).
