    A local rental place up the street from me just added a whole wall of Criterion rentals!!! How lucky am I? How many other people can rent Criterion locally?

    My local library has quite a few Criterions. Just in the past week I've borrowed The Third Man and In the Mood for Love.

    I'll have to check my local library, as far as I know other than Chasing Amy, the Rock, or Traffic, my local video stores don't carry Criterions. That may change with the new Family Video (ironic title since they rent out porn!) opening up soon

    Local library is a great place to rent movies. My local library has tons of criterion. Nothing beats free movie rental from the library.

    Premier Video on Mockingbird in Dallas has lots of Criterions—and many foreign and classic films as well that are on other labels. Good store. And only a mile or so from my home.

    Believe it or not, my local Hollywood Video has a few Criterions...mostly mainstream movies though such as Silence of the Lambs and Robocop.

    I've rented many Criterions from the Plano libraries.

    Kendall suburbs in Miami has DVD Exchange with many a Criterion-- even the first recalled Ed Wood-- to rent. Too bad they have such weak customer traffic, as evryone likes to go to the over-priced rental stores with the big bright signs, while this little hole-in-the-wall actually rents for cheaper and has plenty of Criterions.

    Right here in Maine, and within thirty miles of each other, are two delightful rental stores that each carry the entire Criterion line (including OOP titles). Awesome.

    Hastings here has some Criterions for rent, although they are mostly mainstream titles.
