As we discussed in our poll a few weeks back, one of the biggest complaints that some people have against indie label Twilight Time is that its Blu-rays are quite expensive for catalog titles and never go on sale. Well, in an unexpected yet welcome surprise, at least that last part is about to change. However, be warned that even Twilight Time’s sales are limited editions.
According to an email newsletter sent out by Screen Archives Entertainment (the exclusive distributor of Twilight Time product):
It seems like only yesterday, but incredibly, Twilight Time turns 3 years old this month, and to celebrate we are doing something we’ve never done before which is to offer a special price-promotion on 36 of our Blu-ray titles (one for each month we’ve been in operation!) This promotion will last for exactly 5 days – it will begin with the April pre-orders on Wednesday, March 19th at 4 pm EST, and will run to Monday, March 24th at 4 pm EST. The promotion will be exclusive to SAE’s website at www.screenarchives.com – this is a way to thank you, our intrepid aficionados, for all your support these 3 amazing years, and to give many of you a chance to catch up on titles you may have wanted but put on the back burner, and also to encourage new devotees to try some of our more esoteric back-catalogue items. And thank you again for your patience while the March titles have been delayed.
Eligibile Blu-rays will be discounted by $10, to a prices of either $19.95 (if normally $29.95) or $24.95 (if normally $34.95). That’s still expensive by catalog title standards, but some discount is better than no discount.
The titles in question are:
I already bought several of these at the regular price. Nevertheless, I think I’ll use this opportunity to pick up ‘Jane Eyre’, ‘Bonjour Tristesse’ and possibly ‘The Disappearance’, which were wish list items I never got around to buying.
Coinciding with this sale, the label is also running a special promotion for its Blu-ray release of ‘The Front‘ (not a sale title). 150 people to place an order for $100 or more in Twilight Time product will receive a copy autographed by actress Andrea Marcovicci. Sale titles are eligible for this promotion.
As specified in the announcement, the sale runs from Wednesday, March 19th at 4:00 PM ET until Monday, March 24th at 4:00 PM ET at the Screen Archives web site.
