The Video Show (a.k.a. The Cinema Show: A Video anthology) is a DVD by British band Genesis containing music videos produced between 1976 and 1999.

Although the cover and sleeve say "The Video Show", the introduction to the DVD menu says "The Cinema Show: A Video Anthology", indicating that the name was changed after the DVD was finalised.

All the tracks have had their audio replaced with the new 5.1 Surround Sound and Stereo Remixes featured in the SACD/DVD re-releases. Because of this, some of the videos are missing their original sound effects heard during songs like "Land of Confusion" and "I Can't Dance". "Man on the Corner" was originally a live recorded video while the DVD dubs the footage with the studio track.
