We got another small box of new releases this week but this time with a few more heavy-hitters: "Danny Collins" (w/Al Pacino, Annette Bening, Christopher Plummer, Jennifer Garner and Michael Caine), "Get Hard" (w/Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart), "The Gunman" (w/Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and Idris Elba) and "Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter" (written and directed by David & Nathan Zellner; BR only). A couple of other titles also came in: "Last Knights" (w/Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman) and "Red Army" (the story of the Soviet Union's Red Army hockey team). And, Friday we'll get "While We're Young" (w/Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts).
We will be closed on the 4th of July -- nothing will be due. And, while we'll be open our regular hours on Sunday, let's make that another "no films due today" day so anything rented on Friday won't be due until Monday (and, if you have a block, anything rented Wednesday, Thursday or Friday won't be due until Monday). Happy 4th!
Sale Update: Price Cut 2: Electric Boogaloo -- We've dropped the price on DVDs and BluRays again: now just $14.95/ea (unless otherwise marked, of course). That includes TV series (sold by the season), Criterion titles (lots of DVDs and BluRays left) and everything else in the store... except new releases -- we're not selling those yet. The very cool 9-disc CAV laser disc Star Wars Trilogy box (w/hardcover book!) went home with a lucky customer the other day. Who knows what bargains someone will turn up today? As a reminder, we will continue renting films through the end of July, everything (except new releases) is for sale right now, and if you have rentals left on your Block after we stop renting we'll buy them back from you (or you can use them towards purchasing films). Let me know if you have any questions.
Other than the 4th of July, 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)
