    Interested in picking up the Jonathan Demme-directed live Robyn Hitchcock "Storefront Hitchcock" DVD to coincide with Robyn Hitchcock's appearance at Amoeba Records in Hollywood on Saturday. I know it's full-frame -- as opposed to the OAR version shown on Sundance -- but does anyone know if this is just open-matte or is genuinely pan-and-scan?

    Thanks much. (posting this over in music as well).

    I have it, but outside of saying it on the case, how would I find out?
    If you like Robyn, you will like the disc but why the hell isn't he playing amoeba on Haight Street[​IMG]

    Well, I did it. I bought a fullscreen disc. I had to have this before it becomes non-existent. This film hasn't a shot in hell of ever being released in its OAR. Some marketing guy decided that its a "music video" so it must be fullscreen. [​IMG]
    And Deep Discount DVD is selling it for $6 and change shipped. [​IMG]
