There was a thread on this subject in 2011. But rather than bump that thread, I thought it best to post a new one since 7 years have passed and that thread has been dormant since 2011. There is a much older thread (2005) on the subject of DVDs that contain overtures, intermission, entr’acte and exit music in the DVD section. This is what I have so far, so please feel free to correct and update.

A few corrections for the list:

Ben-Hur does not have exit music on its Blu-ray (nor has the film ever had exit music), while Cleopatra, Doctor Dolittle, Quo Vadis, and The Ten Commandments all have exit music. Also, I believe the Twilight Time Blu-ray of Judgement at Nuremberg has the option to play the film with overture, intermission, entr’acte, and exit music.

The Fall of the Roman Empire has the shortest overture I have ever seen in any film lasting a minute and that's on the dvd I have.

Many thanks for the responses but once again, the list is for films that have overtures, intermissions, entr'actes and exit music in their blu ray incarnations rather than films in general or their DVD counterparts. I'll update the main list soon to reflect the blu ray additions.

Star! and Paint Your Wagon, sadly, are not on blu ray. I stand to be corrected but I don't believe the Kino blu ray of The Lion In Winter has the intermission. Does the current blu ray of Greatest Story Ever Told have all four (overture, intermission, entr'acte, exit music)?

That is true. The videos of this film never have. In fact, I can't imagine where one would go, unless directly after the line, "What family doesn't have it's ups and downs?"

I stand to be corrected but I believe the intermission point is around the 1:28 mark when Peter O'Toole is on the castle's roof top and sinks to the ground. John Barry's score rises and simultaneously the camera rises to give us a birds eye shot of Henry cowering ... intermission.

However, some theaters are notorious for putting an intermission in a different place if it suits them. When If first saw Spartacus, the intermission came at a different spot than originally intended and replicated in its home video incarnations. I saw Gandhi twice during its opening week. The first time in Century City where it played without an intermission and the second time at a Hollywood venue where it played with an intermission.

Speaking of which, does anyone have Gandhi on blu ray? Is the intermission and entr'acte replicated?

I have GANDHI, but I'll have to go back to it to verify.
