Criterion's at Costco for $24.99

didn't see another thread, but i saw several Criterion releases at Costco, all marked $24.99. I saw The Ice Storm, Rolling Stones: Gimmer Shelter, and at least 5 or 6 others but the titles escape me right now =o(

Interesting, I've been wondering why Costco never seemed to carry Criterion stuff. The prices are on par with DVD Planet after tax... was hoping for a little more of discount, but this is an exciting development anyway... thanks for the heads-up.

The Ice Storm would be a worthy title to purchase, but since it doesn't street until 3/18, the Costco system won't allow you to purchase it until that day. This has happened to me on multiple occasions when I tried to buy a title that was put out early. Just an fyi...

I'll certainly be interested to see what other titles they may carry. Regardless, thanks for posting this info op!

Wow it's about time they got around to carrying Criterion's.
I hope they get The Last Emperor soon around my store.

I saw the following at one of my local Costcos: Days of Heaven, The Third Man, Gimme Shelter, Night on Earth, Stranger Than Paradise, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Ace in the Hole and The Ice Storm. All pretty much essential for $24.99.

Dammit!!! They made The Ice Storm a Criterion?!

No wonder Circuit City was selling it so cheap in November!

Must get "Night on Earth"... I have most of the others on that list, but at that price, I'm considering upgrading "The Third Man". Might even get "Ice Storm", if I can...

No Criterions at my Costco, So. County, St. Louis. Hopefully they'll show up Tuesday when "Ice Storm" is supposed to street...

The only one I am looking for is Seven Samurai and I highly doubt they will have it.

I didn't see any Criterions at my Costco yesterday. Either they came and went, or my store did not get them (yet).

Reading the posts here, it looks like people who saw the Criterions are in CA. Not surprising since we obviously have better taste than the rest of the US.

Went ahead and picked up four titles today. They let me have "The Ice Storm" without incident, even though it doesn't street until next week. Of course, my nefarious plan to have the couple ahead of me in line spill their jar of Tiki Masala sauce on the floor helped distract my cashier...

Looks like there were two boxes of the Criterions on hand, each holding maybe 50 or so assorted copies. I only saw one copy of "Ace In The Hole" but a pretty good assortment of the others.

No copies in one Tampa Bay, Fl location (Brandon). I'm going back this week, so I'll check again.

Looks like it's California only. Other states will have to enjoy Hitman instead.

I didn't see any at the Milford, CT Costco this past weekend. However, I have seen them there in the past(Fear and Loathing, House of Games, etc).
