No more kidding ourselves, winter is definitely and defiantly here. But if the cold weather starts getting you down, remember nothing beats an evening at home with a warm blanket, hot drink, and a good movie!
And while you're out holiday shopping, don't forget about our big sale (buy-one-get-one-free on all previously-viewed movies!) as well as our special orders service. (If you want to special order a gift, best to get the requests in soon...) We also have gift certificates available.
New to our shelves this week:
One of the most talked about movies of the year (not to mention one of the most successful) comes courtesy of writer/director Christopher Nolan (Memento; The Prestige; The Dark Knight) and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, Michael Caine, Tom Berenger, Marion Cotillard, Lukas Haas, and Pete Postlethwaite. (did I forget anyone?)
