Arthur, that's a shockingly low price, especially for a Criterion title! I would hope ALL the Wal-Marts have it at the same price. -Mike

What's even more shocking is the fact that Wal-Mart actually HAS a Criterion title.
"Old theatres are irreplaceable. They could never be duplicated at today's costs - but more importantly, their spirit could not be duplicated because they remind us of a day when going to the show was a more glorious and escapist experience. I think a town's old theatres are the sanctuary of...

I saw it at Suncoast today for $19.99. Odd considering what a ripoff these guys usually are.

This DVD is also $19.99 at my local Wal-Mart. Was tempted to pick up, but I thought I had better rent first.

Rung up for $17.99 at Fry's, where it was tagged with $19.99. They often do this, running an ad later in the week with the special price. Also $17.99 at Costco. (US prices)

Keep in mind that the first few prices listed were Canadian dollars. In my experience, the cost of DVDs has been cheaper in Canada, when compared to ANY other country I have been to (in Europe/Asia/and NA). Not too sure why this is, but most often, when in the states, the price of a DVD is the same, but in USD. Guess they figure there's not much to do here in hockey's off-season Posted Image

cheers!
