Before the Big Box stores dominated the scene, your mall expeditions carved your shopping lists into store-specific parts. If you wanted to buy, say, the special edition of Army of Darkness on VHS in the thick clamshell case, you were in for a trip to Suncoast. Combining a well-curated film selection with geek-appropriate collectibles like action figures, lunch boxes, and posters, Suncoast was a dream for the '80s baby turning into a cinephile during the 1990s. They've since become F.Y.E.s, but F.Y.E.s blow.
