Downtown Video Store Honors Nic Cage For Returning His Overdue Movies

In the mood to rent "Ghost Rider," "Raising Arizona" or "Valley Girl" this weekend?

Head on over to Old Bank DVD where you can rent them for free thanks to Nicholas Cage finally turning in his overdue rentals "A Star is Born" and "The King of Comedy," according to the store's Facebook page.

The downtown movie store took to Facebook to shame Cage for failing to return his rentals for four months, according to TMZ. He racked up $224.48 in late fees, but once Cage called to apologize and clear things up (he said an assistant was supposed to turn them in) they knocked the fees down to $80.

Now Old Bank DVD, a rare brick-and-mortar movie store, says everything is cool between them and Cage, according to the store's Facebook page:

So, Just got off the phone with Nic and while he was somewhat put off by the media circus surrounding the issue of his late DVD's that were supposed to have been returned by an assistant before going on location, he seemed generally understanding of our good natured (though, slightly honey badgerish) goofing. Anyway, Old Bank DVD would like to offer a sincere apology To Mr. Cage for any aspersions cast upon his character by our efforts to retrieve our movies. Nic, who is a great customer that still supports local brick and mortars like us, has kindly and quickly taken care of the matter by reimbursing us for the DVD's and a token amount of late fees in accordance to our standard (and generous) policy. As a token of our appreciation for all the fine work Mr. Cage has done in film, with any rental this weekend, our customers may also pick one Nicolas Cage movie for free - and that's like half our store, I mean seriously, that's one hard working actor ;-). Welcome back anytime Nic.
