    If you're in the NY area, Blowout Video, in Times Square, is having a sale where everything in the store is 50% off, other than items already on sale at about 30% off.

    They may be going out of business, if the storeclerk chatter is to be taken seriously.

    Just tonight, I picked up for $9.44 each:

    Sweet Smell of Success
    McCabe & Mrs. Miler
    Fiddler on the Roof
    Hudsucker Proxy
    Outlaw Josey Wales
    Small Change

    And, for $11.94:

    Wayne's World
    On the Waterfront


    This also applies to videogames, VHS, you name it. When I was there, there were plenty of box sets, Criterions, etc.

    I'd get there soon...

    Stu,

    Thanks! Went over there this afternoon, got 15 movies for $210. Could've spent 500 on good movies. Great sale, too bad the store is closing.

    Where is this place exactly -- I've never heard of it.

    Blowout Video is located on Broadway between 44th and 45th Streets, just below the MTV Studios.

    Blowout Video used to be one of the stop-sites back when Ron held the weekend DVD get-togethers. They even gave HTF members a discount. If they are going out of business, I'll give them a moment of silence.
