New arrivals for the week of June 16, 2015
Chappie
The Lazarus Effect
Run All Night
Unfinished Business

Greetings everyone,

This week's Big Box Office releases are: "Chappie" (w/Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver and the voice of Sharlto Copley... and Yo-Landi and Ninja!), "Lazarus Effect" (w/Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, Evan Peters and Sarah Bolger), "Run All Night" (w/Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman, Ed Harris and Common) and "Unfinished Business" (w/Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson and Dave Franco). There were also a couple of smaller titles: "Cas & Dylan" (w/Tatiana Maslany and Richard Dreyfuss), "Old Fashioned" (w/Elizabeth Roberts and Rik Swartzwelder), "Welcome to Me" (w/Kristen Wiig, Alan Tudyk, Linda Cardellini and Will Ferrell) and "Wild Tales" (Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film). The only TV set to come in was the third season of the HBO drama, "The Newsroom". Btw, we'll keep getting new releases and renting films through the end of July. You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

The first few days of our sale have been a bit chaotic but overall seem to have gone smoothly. As predicted, a lot of the higher end/collectible stuff got scooped up first (although I am still finding super rare stuff as I scan the shelves). I was surprised to see the bulk of our Criterion Collection still intact (DVD and BluRay) -- I would have thought most of them would have flown off the shelves first thing. We'll keep everything at $19.95/ea for a few more days and will then drop the price a few dollars. Grab what you think is worth $19.95 now, come back later for cheaper stuff. The University will be back later in the week to make another giant pile. The first stack was mostly international titles, the out-of-print Disney stuff and a handful of rarities from throughout the store. And, we're still sorting through boxes of doubles, discs without cases, and single discs from TV shows -- that stuff will all go out soon.

Remember, we are now on our somewhat shorter Summer hours:
Monday - Thursday (11:00-8:00), Friday (11:00 - 9:00), Saturday (noon-9:00) and Sunday (noon - 8:00)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
