: : : As a note of encouragement for those in a bind over this DVD situation, I checked out my local Blockbuster Video store (thanks for the suggestion, Rich) and they rent DVD players for $14.95 for FIVE evenings. (You have to leave a $150 deposit, cash or credit card, refundable upon return of undamaged player.)
: : Well, it tried the rental option a while ago, but I think our Canadian stores aren't up to date..We have BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO but the staff looked more than confused when I asked about DVD player rentals...Oh well...Any other ideas?

: Don't feel bad; I have been in Blockbuster 3 times in 5 years and all of those times, the 13 year olds who work the counters...(they sure didn't look much older than that and had about as much knowledge of movies....they are 2 out of 3 for screwing up movie rentals....) so I shudder to even go into there to ask about a rental DVD ...but what do we do for LOTM...(I go to our 3 local independent video stores....but they don't rent DVD player's...)and I live in the SF Bay Area...so it just goes to show you....sometimes it doesn't matter where you live.
At least your 'Blockbuster Video' rents DVD's - mine doesn't!! Mind you, they are all fired up because the bigger outlets do and they can't get any!! So - they are now taking signatures of all the people asking for DVD's to rent and are going to send it to their 'head office' and insist that their branch gets them in. They have MORE than enough customers asking for them. Just goes to show - one 'Blockbuster Video' does not necessarily carry the same things as the next one!!
