Dear Listserv Members:
Seems to me letterbox is the WHOLE movie---you know, the one you pay for =
at the theatre. Without the letterbox format, you don't get to see the =
sides of the film. As the movies are a part of artistic expression, who =
are we to argue with the director? My patron's don't mind letterbox, if =
they come that way, we get them that way.

Please help me here. Don't most people own normal TV sets? As an=20
individual, nothing is more irritating to me than to rent a movie and=20
get it home and find out it is "letterbox." I want my whole screen=20
filled up with picture. What am I supposedly missing out on? =20

Oh, we don't purposely order any titles in Letterbox here at CSUS. =20

Wow,=20
I just joined this list and already interesting topic! When a video is=20
available both ways, I don't even consider "pan and scan". Our system=20
is medium-large--23 branches and 1 central library. When I order=20
videos, some of the other branches attach to my order so, they too get=20
what I order. (Widescreen) If a title is "letterboxed" our catalogers=20
specify in the record if the title is "letterboxed". If it is not=20
letterboxed then no notation is made.

In short, educate the public, buy "Widescreen"!

Hope this helps,
