It is 2014 and Dan Creskoff has an idea for a business:

Video rentals.

So Creskoff knows it's not necessarily a blockbuster idea. But when you twin it with a coffeeshop and stick to a curated list of movie titles, he may be on to something with CineMug, coming to 1607 S. Broad St., near Tasker.

Creskoff knows his flicks. He joined the South Street TLA Video store in 1992 and managed the Spring Garden Street and Locust Street locations until the rental store went dark three years ago.

Along with DVDs and Blu-rays of cult classics, foreign films and such, he will pour ReAnimator Coffee, and sell sandwiches from Cosmi's Deli and home-baked pastries.

Opening will be sometime this fall.
