Adopt-a-movie is an opportunity to become the personal sponsor or "parent" of a film in the AroVideo library.

We've created this scheme to ensure the continued growth and viability of AroVideo as a comprehensive resource for film-lovers nationwide, in what is a continually challenging market environment.

Adopt-a-Movie Options

  • New Title ($35.00): Adopt a film on DVD that you would like to have added to our rental collection.
  • Existing title ($20.00): Adopt a film or TV show on DVD from any title in our library (that has not yet been adopted).
  • Replacement title ($35.00): Adopt a film on DVD that will replace the VHS tape copy in our rental collection. A sample selection of these can be found in our Adopt-a-Movie Suggestions, from where titles can be directly ordered.
  • Business Adoption ($35.00): Adopt a film on DVD and have your business name forever linked to any available title of your choice.
  • Donated title: Donate a film on DVD to add to our rental collection.

Alternatively, you can simply e-mail, tweet, or Facebook post the title you'd like to adopt and we will "put it up for adoption" on our site, so you can then make a direct purchase.

As the "parent" of an adopted movie, you will...

  • enjoy a free rental of the film anytime, and forever.*
  • receive an official certificate** that inducts you into the AroVideo Library Expansion & Preservation Society (AVLEPS).
  • have your name (or pseudonym) displayed on the film casing and its web page on our website (optional).
  • appreciate the expanded range of films adopted by other film-lovers as they will appreciate yours.

Here's the list of Adopted Movies so far, and a separate list of Adopted Movies New to our Catalogue.

Thank you for supporting old school media and service!
