The all new Strawberry Fields is opening on Thursday -- and I am super excited! We are still getting the biggest new releases each week -- this week's top titles are: "5 Flights Up" (w/Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton), "Deli Man" (w/third-generation deli man Ziggy Gruber), "Maggie" (w/Abigail Breslin and Arnold Schwarzenegger) and "Woman in Gold" (Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds and Daniel Bruhl). The only other title that came in was "Slow West" (w/Michael Fassbender, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Rory McCann and Ben Mendelsohn). Next week we'll be getting "Ex Machina" and "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel". Remember, until the end of July, you can still rent anything in the store.
Price Drop III: With a Vengeance -- It's time to drop the price once again. DVDs and BluRays are now just $12.95/ea (unless otherwise marked, of course). That includes TV series (sold by the season -- each season just $12.95), Criterion titles ($12.95 is crazy cheap for those!) and everything else in the store... except new releases -- we're not selling those yet. The Shout!Factory 13-disc Herzog collection went to a very deserving home last week but we still have the 6-disc Herzog Documentaries & Shorts box. I don't imagine it will make it through the week. Also, we'll be putting out about a dozen Korean TV shows later this week -- they'll be priced individually. As many have discovered, a quick scan of the shelves can turn up a ton of bargains. Come early, come often...
Reminder: we are 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)
