Movie ratings were created in order to help you choose films with subject matter and material acceptable to you and your family. What ratings can't tell you is a movie's quality. But we know that not all movies, no matter how superb they may be, are suited for all viewers. To help you better exercise your own freedom of choice, we've clearly marked the rating on the movie box of MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) rated movies. Unrated movies are not labeled and are considered "R" for rental restriction unless the films are in the Family, Children's, Classic or Special Interest sections.


It is the policy of Video Signals not to rent or sell R-rated tapes to anyone under the age of seventeen with parental restrictions on their account and not to rent or sell movies with NC-17 ratings to people under seventeen at all. You may specify an R-rating restriction for your account at any time. If you have any concerns about our policies, please let us know.


We've always been happy to help you entertain your family. We have a Children's section of primarily animated films renting for $1.99 each and a Family section of mostly live action, PG or G rated films suitable for younger children.


We arrange our movies in categories because we believe that if you come into a store unsure about what you want to watch, categories can help you decide.

Our standards for choosing a category are: we think customers will identify this category as a type of movie they would like to watch; there is a clear definition of which movies should go in that category.

We try to be conservative when movies have strong elements of more than one category. Some movies, like Starsky and Hutch, contain action and comedy. When we have a borderline case, we ask the question "If you take this movie from its category, will it be what you expect?" So in the case of Starsky and Hutch we thought that you wouldn't be surprised to find comedy in an action movie, but you might be upset to take home a comedy with a large degree of violence. Therefore, it was put it into Action.

You'll also find something for everyone in our "Crowd Pleasers" sections in Action, Comedy, Drama and Science Fiction. We spotlight films we think will entertain the whole family. There are no R-rated films in Crowd Pleasers, but there are PG-13s. Some of the Dramas may make you cry; some of the Actions have some violence -- so not all of these movies may be suitable for the youngest members of your crowd.


Looking for another good place to find some inspiration? The "Featuring" section highlights varying selections like the Top 75 or the films of Oscar nominees or the Managers' favorites. The selection changes regularly, and it's always something fun and interesting. So check it out when you're having trouble deciding what to watch.


Movies make great gifts and we have them for sale at all of our stores. If you are looking for a particular movie that we don't have in stock, we will special order it if we can at no additional charge.

If you'd like to treat someone to Video Signals rentals, it's our pleasure. We offer Movie rental certificates individually or in books of ten. And, of course, Video Signals gift certificates are also available.
