This week's biggest new releases include: "Clouds of Sils Maria" (w/Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart and Chloe Grace Moretz), "Ex Machina" (w/Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander), "The Longest Ride" (w/Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood) and "Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" (w/Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Dev Patel, Bill Nighy, Richard Gere and David Strathairn). Also new this week: "It Follows" (w/Maika Monroe), "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" (w/Kevin James), "Salt of the Earth" (directed by Juliano Ribeiro Salgado and Wim Wenders) and "While We're Young" (w/Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried and Charles Grodin). Next week it looks like there's only one title coming in: Zaza Urushadze's "Tangerines" -- that might be the last title we add to our inventory. Remember, there are still a couple weeks left to rent films... better clear your calendar!
Price Drop IV: The Voyage Home -- We're halfway through our closing sale so let's cut the price to half of what it was originally. DVDs and BluRays are now just $9.95/ea (unless otherwise marked, of course). That includes TV series (sold by the season -- each season just $9.95), what's left of the Criterion titles ($9.95 is like stealing for those!) and everything else (except New Releases) in the store. At this price, the TV shows should move quickly and I think we'll start seeing giant gaps in the International and Independent sections -- there are still lots of great titles in both. Remember, everything in the store is still for rent until the end of the month (or until it gets sold). Plan on staying a while if you're going to go through all the sections -- there are still about 30,000 titles left on the shelves!
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...
