Video Revolution: Bill Blair & VCI EntertainmentNOW CLOSED August 2014-July 2015
Growing up in Eufaula in the 1930s and 40s, Bill Blair loved movies. He even worked picking cotton to earn money for his first projector that he then used to show films at the local armory or in a tent just outside of town.
His love of movies led him to begin his own film collection that turned into a movie rental business. Blair’s business quickly expanded to become United Films, Inc., in the early 1960s and a decade later, Video Communications, Inc. Along the way Blair’s businesses have remained at the forefront of the home video market while also maintaining ties to the past by fulfilling a need for access to many classic films.
