Forthcoming Feature Films
October 19, 2010
I have a friend coming to visit this weekend. She called me up last night, and asked if I wanted to see a movie when she gets here. I said sure, and then stopped to think about the last movie I saw in a theater. Sadly, I can’t remember what or when that was! I always see trailers for upcoming movies that look awesome, and then miss them when they’re actually in the theater.
Fortunately, I know I can always rely on the library to help me out. MCPL gets all the latest movies on DVD as soon as they are released, and I can check them out for a week for free. I don’t even have to try to remember what movies I’ve missed to look them up in the catalog, because there is this super handy feature in the search menu called Forthcoming Titles under which I can find Feature Films. This list includes all the newest movies that are in the catalog, even though they aren’t out on DVD yet. So, I can get on the hold list for movies right away. If you haven’t used this feature before, use it now! Seriously, it’s a gold mine.
Some movies I missed in the theater (or just want to see again as soon as they’re released), and am now on the hold list for (that you might like, too):
