Our first Kickstarter was successful beyond our wildest dreams! Thanks to 440 amazing supporters, we were able to raise $45,288.00 to help save Naro Video! 

Gonna fly now!
Gonna fly now!

Because of your generous contributions, we will be able to give serious focus to our non-profit endeavors, expand our collection, purchase new equipment, and give us the financial foundation to begin cataloging our expansive collection so we can bring you a searchable database! 

Within the next few days all of our backers will be receiving a survey regarding their reward. If you bundled rewards this will be the place to let us know. You can also email us at to make sure we get that information or to ask us any question!

We are actively looking for community and business partnerships to foster and grow as part of our new outreach efforts. If you would like to partner with us for a screening, film discussion, fundraiser, or any other cool idea you may have... let us know! Email us at, call our store at 757-622-3738, or come visit us!

If you are interested in volunteer opportunities with us or joining our volunteer board, please email us at 

Check our facebook, twitter @narovideo, and instagram @naroexpandedvideo for updates on our collection and events! 

And lastly, while this Kickstarter exceeded our wildest expectations, we still rely on your patronage and donations! We are open 7 days a week! Sunday to Thursday we're here from 11am to 9pm and until 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays. We have over 42,000 titles for you to browse and enjoy! Tell all your friends about us! You don't have to live in Ghent or in Norfolk to enjoy our wonderful collection. 

Thank you again to everyone who supported this endeavor. Thank you for sharing this far and wide. Thank you for your words of support and encouragement. Thank you for your donations. It means the world to us to know that our community believes in us and our importance. You like us! You really like us!

      So happy you met your goal. My son took me to your amazing store when we were visiting him and our daughter-in-law in Norfolk earlier this year from our home in Colorado. When he told me about your campaign, I was more than willing to contribute for this worthy cause.
