Only in Cinemas

| | Comments (3)

Why do they advertise movies as "Only in cinemas"?? Because there's no such thing. A few weeks or months later it'll be "only on dvd" and a few months after that on tv.

Except Disney movies that never make it free-to-air. And ET which took ten years to make it to television.

Has anyone *ever* heard of a movie that's been on "only in cinemas" ?

It's to spare the poor clerk at the video rental place the agony of having hundreds of people walking in and saying "I saw an ad for Spider-Man 3" - where do I find it?

At the time the commercial is released, the film IS "only in cinemas!"

In other words, the movie is "only in cinemas" until it comes out on dvd and rental?

Dave/Anja: yup, but to me it sounds misleading, as if it's only ever going to be shown in the cinemas, so if you don't see it at the movies, you'll never get to see it.
