Very near. If you check out the link above, it has the Google map all cued up. Just click on the map on the flyer.

I'm in Bend, but am not willing to go through the Cascades (2 1/2 hours drive). Good luck to those who go there.

I'll head up there sometime tomorrow. I'm coming from Salem, and just got paid, so a costco/fry's trip was planned anyway. Doubt there will be too much i'm intrested in, but i'm still willing to check it out for those prices.

Just saw this now. Did anyone get there this morning? Is it worth going if I can't get there until tomorrow?

I'm actually wondering this myself. I posted the info and was REALLY looking forward to going this morning, but woke up with a colossal headache (from this roller-coaster weather we've been having), so I had to skip out on it.

Drove by and saw a huge line out to the parking lot. Kept on driving. Costco was packed too. So I just went to Fry's to get a new DVD burner.

Would have checked it out, but had my wife and baby with me. It was too hot for her to be out there today.


Oh well.

MY guess would be that this is crap that they couldn't unload in Previously Viewed sales at their stores. Still, I might just have to find some time today to drop by. Who knows what treasures might be lying around?

Feeling better today, so I took the plunge and went down there. It was an interesting setup, to say the least. Not nearly enough room for all the people they let in at one time.

Everything was priced at $2, $4, or $6, according to colored dots. It was most definitely all the stuff they couldn't sell at their PVD sales, but it was certainly a good sale for filler movies. We ended up with the following:

$6 each

Ray
The Man
Just Like Heaven
Corpse Bride
The Legend of Zorro
Ice Princess
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Raising Helen
Elizabethtown
The Great Raid
Yours, Mine & Ours

$4 each

Someone Like You
Suspect Zero
Down With Love
The Mothman Prophecies
Miss Congeniality 2

$2: Gosford Park

17 movies for $88 - not terrible.

Then, we stopped in at GameStop, where I picked up Strange Brew, Far From Heaven, Daddy Day Care, Dr. Doolittle 2, The Shaggy Dog, Wallace & Gromit - Curse of the Were Rabbit, plus a Tony Hawk Gamecube game for the kiddo, for $34.xx total!

So, at the end of the day, we've picked up 23 movies (plus a video game) for $122.xx or $5.30/each.... a pretty good haul, all in all.

(And if I had any worries that I may have to go into a 12-step program to eliminate my dvd addiction, those worries were put to rest at the Hollywood sale, where I heard several people comment that this was their SECOND trip, because they were sure new titles had been set out since yesterday! )

I did another drive by today, didn't like seeing another line. I also noticed people that had dvd's with white covers, so I passed again. I figured it would be fairly newer releases and the left overs from yesterday would be 100 Catwoman's for 2 bucks each. I also went to the game stop, didn't see Strange Brew and would have got it if you didn't.

Got there about 10:15 this morning, and had to wait about fifteen minutes to get in. While I didn't find anything earth-shattering, I did pick up a lot of stuff that I'd been on the fence about. I got 20 movies for $94.
