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...

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.

Hold on tightly, let go lightly.

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.
Studios, caption your internet streams.
