What b&m stores will have Videodrome?

I haven't seen anything in any ads and was curious if someone can help me out. No need to tell me BB has it because I don't have one within 250 miles

I'm sure your local Borders and Barnes and Noble will have it. Tower Records and Virgin Megastore should also be carrying it.

The only store of those I have is Barnes and Noble. I'm really hoping Costco will have it or at least Circuit city

I've yet to see criterions carried at any other B&M places except for titles like Chasing Amy and The Royal Tenenbaums. You could try Fry's if you've got one of those around.

HAHAHA! No Fry's here. I figured CC since they have it online.

At CC's price, I'd rather just buy it through a number of great online sites, particularly amazon.com with its share the love price, or dvdplanet.com. Again,if you must have it B&M. You can also try Suncoast, FYE, Musicland, and maybe even The Wherehouse.

the Best Buy here carries select Criterion titles. Since they have Naked Lunch I imagine they'll carry this as well. Not holding my breath till they get around to putting it on the shelf though.

Picked it up at DVDPlanet in HB for $25.97. Excellent packaging on this one. Can't wait to watch it tonight!

I picked it up from Best Buy this morning for 34.99. Steep, but i've paid full price for Criterions, so it wasn't bad at all.


One copy stocked, so take that for what it's worth.

Got it at BB Cleveland for $28 with the Madden 05 coupon ($35 retail). FYI, they had 3 copies of Videodrome at 5 pm.

I preordered mine, for one, it was cheaper, plus I got it Monday. And really, why does Best Buy only carry select CC titles?

They need room for 12,000 copies of "The Girl Next Door" in both rated and unrated editions.

For Boston-area folk, Newbury Comics has it for $29.99. They had tons of copies in the new release section at the Newbury St. location.

Tower had it, lots and lots of copies; but then they have a seperate Criterion section and a standup Criterion display also, so they're pretty big pimpers of CC.

Local Best Buy says they have a copy but damned if anyone in the store can find it. I've pretty much given up on Best Buy when it comes to getting non-mainstream DVDs on release day. They don't seem to care about anything except pushing 5 million copies of THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST...

Ordered it from DVD Planet instead (and cheaper).
