The Black Dog Video Newsletter: Price Ch-Changes Part II Edition!

 

As we draw nearer the end of days for ye Olde Black Dog Video, there are thousands of films we still need to unload. Tons of amazing titles are up for grabs. I’m constantly amazed how many great films are still left when folks bring them up to the desk to buy.

With that in mind, we’re adjusting our pricing structure once again:

All $10 catalogue DVDs and Blu Rays (so many left!) can be scooped up at the insanely insane deal of 3 for $10! That’s right – buy one get, 2 FREE! Call us crazy!

Any $15 – $25 title – take off $5. Anything over $25 – take off $10!

You’re saving money buying these!

Tomorrow is to be the last day to rent New Releases and on the 16th they will be available for sale. Here’s the pickle – I still have some titles on the way (late of course) and these will not be available to buy right away. I’d like to get some rental action on these first.

Arriving this week:

Benedetta – Black Dog favourite Paul Verhoeven is back with his entry into Black Dog favourite section, Nunspoitation! Yes please.

Everything Everywhere All at Once – Michelle Yeoh stars in this spectacular, fun romp around various universes as she tries to save ours.

Morbius – Everyone’s favourite actor to dunk on, Jared Leto, sullies up the screen with this Marvel entry. Makes Venom look like a Criterion release.

Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent – The ultimate Nic Cage movie! Nic Cage plays Nic Cage (can’t think of a better actor to play Nic Cage) in this post-modern (is that still a thing?) action comedy.

We’re hoping to squeeze in a couple of more podcasts recorded in the shop before we close. Stay tuned.

We also have some shelving units we need to unload. Gimme a shout if you’re interested.

There’s probably more things to tell you about but I can’t remember what they might be. Sad, hectic times at the shop lately.

Hope to see all your lovely faces soon!

All DVDs and Blu Rays priced between $10 and $30 – take $5 off that price (that’s up to 50% savings!). Over $30 – take $10 off! Come on folks, pop in, and buy a little something something for yourself or someone you may or may not care about.

The Black Dog Newsletter: Dates to Remember Edition!

As we inch towards the end of days here at the shop, here’s some important (to some) dates to jot down on your forearm or wherever one keeps important dates…

June 1st: All TV series are now up for sale! We are missing some of the boxes for some of the seasons of some of the shows. But if we have the actual disks you can take them for half price.

June 10th: Last day to rent catalogue titles. We need to get them back before closing.

June 15th: Last day to rent new releases. We need to get them back before closing.

June 18th: New releases titles are up for sale.

June 25th: The very last day that any Black Dog Video will ever be open.

July 1st: Exhale.

I guess this all makes it kinda final, doesn’t it?

 

But Black Dog Video will still live on in the form of our online shop! Kind of like a ghost! You can still order movies, shirts, mugs, whatever swag we have. https://blackdogvideo.ca/

Remember Video Cat on Cambie (the old Black Dog Video – ignore the awning) is still open and they could use your support. I’ll probably see you in the aisles there getting some choice films.

Everyone be good to everyone out there.

Change in the Hours of Operation!

 

Just a quick note – we’re going to be closed tomorrow  – Thursday May 26th  – for inventory and growing our hair back. We may make this permanent. We also may make it 2 days a week. Pop back in here for updates.  Sorry about the inconvenience.

We’re also canceling all memberships (the ones that folks signed up for online) asap. Everyone can still rent, although most folks are buying our sweet babies, up to the middle(ish) of June. Then the New Releases will be up for sale as well.

Thanks for understanding and whatnot.

The Black Dog Video Newsletter: End of Days Edition!

We’re approaching the finality of the BIG SALE. I still can’t believe that this is happening. Part of me is incredibly sad but part of me also cannot wait for it to be over. It’s been an incredibly stressful and emotional few weeks. But I won’t burden you with my problems.

Strap on your buying pants, here’s what you need to know for this Sunday (May 22nd)

Doors open at noon and close at 6pm (that’s about all we can take). We will be open regular hours (12-8pm) for the duration of us in business – sometime near the end of June. The sale will continue until then. As will rentals (New Releases and whatever we have left).

All catalogue films will be on sale. No New Releases. No TV series. No Collectibles. These will be made available for purchase later.

Masks are encouraged to keep everyone safe(ish).

Because it’s a small shop we’re only letting in a certain number of folks at a time (probably around 15-20). Please keep your shopping short and sweet. Bring a list. Also be prepared to not get everything on that list.

Please bring your own bags.

You pay cash (preferred) we’ll pay the tax.

New Things creeping onto the shelves this week:

 

Keep an Eye Out – Latest weirdness from weirdo Quentin Dupieux (Rubber, Wrong) finds a guy at a police station where everyone is crazy. Pretty fun, weird (did I mention weird?) French little number. Blu Ray only.

Studio 666 – The Foo Fighters movie into a haunted mansion in Encino to record an album. All hell breaks loose. Literally and figuratively and literally.

 

Oh, and lost in all this mayhem – we managed to record a new podcast episode! Listen as us louts and a special guest star sit down, have a few pops, and talk about our feelings. Our feelings, that is, about the classic 80’s thriller The Stepfather!

One last thing – our resident comedian, Dylan Rhymer, just dropped a new comedy album. You should buy it! He’s a funny fella!

That’s it for this week, folks. Stay healthy, be nice and keep watching. For now.
