Deals & Events!

Birthday Deals!

Waterfront Video continues its 15th Anniversary celebration this month with special deals every week. Last Saturday, we had a drawing and gave away 10 free rentals - congratulations, Seth H.!

This week, it's all about Television. Through Saturday, you can rent the FIRST disc of the FIRST season of ANY series for free! (No other rental required. And this includes New Releases too, but we are limiting the number of freebies to two per visit.) Time to check out those shows you've been wondering about!

Next week, we'll be having daily Trivia challenges. Answer a question correctly when renting a movie and get it for free!

Then, from the Friday after Thanksgiving until the end of the month, we'll be having a huge blow-out sale on all previously-viewed sale movies. The more you buy, the cheaper they are!

And on Wednesday, November 30th, we'll be having a birthday party all day. Special one-day deals & offers, a guest appearance or two, and even birthday cake! Mark your calendars!!

Local Events...
So much going on!

Time, Memory and Identity: Readings by Burlington Writers

This Wednesday (tonight!), from 5:00 - 7:30, a quartet of great local writers including Nancy Stearns Bercaw, Selene Colburn, Erik Esckilsen and Lisa Kuse read new material addressing the themes of the evening's presentation. At Levity (on Center Street - near The Daily Planet).

The Pillowman
Burlington's Saints & Poets Productions presents the provocative and challenging play by Martin McDonagh (In Bruges; The Cripple of Inishmaan) about a writer in a totalitarian state who is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a rash of child-killings in his town. Part Kafka, part Law & Order, part Tim Burton, part Brothers Grimm... plus puppets! Read the BFP feature here and review here. Read the Seven Days review here. Runs Nov. 10 - 13th at the Black Box Theater in Waterfront's Main Street Landing building. Matinees on Saturday & Sunday.

New England's largest community theater company presents the smash hit musical based on the great 1988 John Waters flick. Set in Baltimore in the early 60s, the story involves a teenager's dancing aspirations, a popular TV show, and a powerful racial awakening. The show runs between Nov. 10 - 13, with matinees on both Saturday & Sunday, at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. "Ma, it's changing out there! People who are different, their time is coming!"

Gogol Bordello
Everyone's favorite Gypsy Punk band appears this Thursday at Higher Ground with Burlington supergroup Blue Button. If you miss the show (or just can't get enough of the band or charismatic frontman Eugene Hutz), you can stop by the store and rent Gogol Bordello: Non-Stop, The Pied Piper of Hutzovina, Kill Your Idols, Madonna's Filth & Wisdom, Wristcutters: A Love Story, or Everything is Illuminated.
