Just a thought about the video release

Just a thought, is Titanic the first movie to be released on video whilst the movie is still being shown in cinemas? I can't think of any others.

I can think of at least one from last year - L. A. Confidential. I also think Raiders of the Lost Ark was released on video while still playing at the second runs, but I've been known to be wrong. I'm sure there are others. An "enhanced" version of The Star Wars Trilogy, of course, was released in theaters just last year after being on video (in original form) for years. This will probably happen to Titanic; look for a slightly expanded or enhanced version within the next decade. It will feature a digitized three-dimensional "Cal" character to replace the cardboard cutout villian in the original and overdubbed improvements to the dialogue....

I can't wait!

Hi Emma, actually I went to the movies earlier this year to see The Full Monty and went home to find my husband watching it on video, this is the first time it's happened in my memory.
