Criterion Collection SALE on now

'Tis the season for giving! And when one selects a present, one always strives to give the very best. That why we're entering the holiday home stretch with a SALE on our entire selection of new Criterion Blu-ray and DVD titles so you can save on movies for the cinephiles on your list (and maybe get something for yourself, of course).


Not familiar with Criterion? Here's a brief explanation from their site:

Since 1984, the Criterion Collection, a continuing series of important classic and contemporary films, has been dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in editions that offer the highest technical quality and award-winning, original supplements.


From now until January 6, 2013, our Criterion and Eclipse series titles will be on sale for:

$3 OFF titles priced $29.95 or less 

For example, Rosemary's Baby, Rashomon and Jean-Luc Godard's Weekend are now each $21.95 for the DVD or $26.95 for the Blu-ray


$5 OFF  titles priced $34.95 or more

The set of Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo and Sanjuro is now $44.95 for either the DVD or Blu-ray. America Lost and Found: The BBS Story, a collection of seven films from the film studio, is now $64.95 for the DVD or $84.95 for the Blu-ray. And Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colors Trilogy is $54.95 for either the Blu-ray or DVD.

We invite you to come and browse our Criterion sales section, featuring the largest selection of said titles in Seattle, and which we always have discounted at least 15-30 percent off the suggested retail price. If, like us, you find yourself a bit overwhelmed and need a good in-road or idea generator, we highly recommed you check out Criterion's Top 10 Lists. Read what folks like Wes Anderson, Jane Campion, Steve Buscemi, Bill Hader, Diablo Cody, and  many other influential filmmakers and artists rank as their favorites of the Criterion Collection. We've found these lists to be not only entertaining but also extremely helpful for picking what to watch, give, and/or own.

Happy Holidays from all of us here at Scarecrow!
