Robert Blair, President of VCI said, “We wholeheartedly continue the tradition my father began almost 50 years ago: of finding, preserving and distributing classic (and sometimes eclectic) movies, spanning decades of film production and many popular genres, of the highest-quality reproductions we can procure. Our goal is to become the leading independent supplier of archival quality classic film and television entertainment. It’s an ambitious goal, but we think it is a noble one.”

VCI Entertainment, the oldest surviving home video company in the USA, specializes in acquiring, restoring and preserving classic motion pictures from the 1930s, and beyond. These properties are then distributed in all medias worldwide.
