About MomaDVD

MomaDVD is two things:

  1. a DVD rental and delivery service
  2. a community for sharing your DVDs

The concept:

Beijing is great. Except you can't rent movies.

Generally speaking, it doesn't even make sense to, since you can buy decent pirated DVDs for about 15 kuai. The problem is, if you're like us, you've probably begun accumulating a sizeable collection of DVDs that's just collecting dust in some corner of your apartment. You might watch your DVDs a second time, but probably you'll just watch them once and eventually throw them away. Maybe you don't even buy DVDs in the first place, since you shudder at the thought of such wasteful behavior.

Enter MomaDVD. MomaDVD works in cooperation with Moma's own Backyard Shop, the general store on the ground floor of building 5, to bring DVD rentals to residents of the Moma community. Did you know that they deliver food? Well now they deliver DVDs, too! Just browse through our site to see what movies are available, call the shop and have a DVD delivered right to your door, 24 hours a day, for only 5 kuai.

Our DVDs are contributed by the community. Don't let your used DVDs go to waste. Bring them down to the shop and share the love. If you register a free account, you'll be credited for the donation. Do it. It will make you feel good.

The people:

MomaDVD's cataloguing and delivery service is provided to you by the hardworking folks downstairs at the Backyard Shop, who tirelessly deliver 24 hours a day. Don't forget, when you order a DVD from them, get some popcorn, too. Maybe some beers. Or a fine bottle of Great Wall.

The website and concept are created by a small group of foreigners who like movies, Moma, and saving the planet from evil.
