Black Dog Video Newsletter February 27 – Mar 5 “Holy Hotdogs Edition!”


Holy hotdogs! There’s so many things to mention this week! First of all, let me apologize once more for the delay in getting the new releases into your eyeballs. Especially over at the Commercial store. Dealing with the new system my distributor implemented is akin to getting a monkey to wash your cat (it’s quite difficult).

Also – it’s the 22nd anniversary of the Cambie Store! March 5th, 1996 we opened the doors to welcome your lovely and eager faces. It was an exciting time for us (I had less children and more hair back then). It’s sure has been a long strange wonderful trip. Amazing. Here’s to 22 more!

Also the RIO Theatre has their fundraising program now in place. Click here to find out more and lend a helping hand. This is a place in Vancouver that deserves saving.

New Releases Hopefully Showing up This Week!

In addition to the films that arrived last week at Cambie, including Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, Murder on the Orient Express, The Darkest Hour and Coco, all of which should be at Commercial in a day or so, we expect the following at both stores this week as well…


The Breadwinner – Excellent animated fare about a young girl in Afghanistan who disguises herself as a boy in order to go out an earn money to help out her family. Nominated for the Oscars. One of Dylan’s (remember him?) favourite films of last year.


Crooked House – Nice cast (Glenn Close, Terence Stamp, Gillian Anderson, others) liven up the scene in this twisty and turny Agatha Christie tale of a murder most foul.


Ethel and Ernest – Nice low-key animated tale of a couple of Londoners living out their lives through the Blitz and so forth.


Lady Bird – Oscar-nominated fare from the amazing Great Gerwig tells the, somewhat autobiographical, tale of the coming of age of a 17 year-old girl in Sacramento of all places. Good things are to be found here.


The Man Who Invented Christmas – At least there’s a bit of snow left on the ground to enjoy this Christmas movie about how Dickens came to write A Christmas Carol (probably the movie I’ve seen the most in my life – the 1951 version of course). Dan Stevens plays Chuck Dick (as known to his friends) and Christopher Plumber is the Scrooge.


Thor: Ragnarok – Third time’s the charm as we finally have a good Thor movie. All it took was the director of What We Do in the Shadows to take charge. Really looking forward to this one.

Coming Soon!

The Hangman
Justice League
Mom and Dad
Wonder Wheel
Faces Places
Blue Planet II
Curb Your Enthusiasm S9

One of our customers at the Commercial had come into his possession a signed Errol Flynn headshot! He’s looking to pass it on to an excited collector for a reasonable price (I assume). You can contact him here if you’re interested .

Check it out here..

Whew. Thanks for sticking with us till the end. Cheers to you all!
