UPDATE:  4/3/2020.  Coronavirus has changed all of our lives.  I wish you all the best and hope you and your loved ones are safe.  Here at Sinister Cinema things are a bit tough, but we are hanging in there as best we can.  If you need some good movies or books to pass the time with, we're here to help out.  Thanks so much.  In the meantime, stay inside and keep sanitizing like crazy!  Our country will get through this.  I have now doubt of that.  Stay safe and stay well.  Best, Greg Luce


First off, I want to thank EVERYONE who has supported us over the past year.  2019 was a good year, far better than we had expected and light years ahead of 2018.  As you all know, last year saw the publication of the final Sinister Cinema catalog, in which we announced the possibility that we might shut down the company or, at the very least, reduce it to part-time hours. 

I am pleased to tell you that WE WILL CONTINUE ON A PART-TIME BASIS THROUGH JANUARY, 2021.

So here’s what we’re going to do, as of February 1st, 2020 we have reduced Sinister Cinema’s hours to a 4-day schedule.  Our new hours of operation will be Tuesday thru Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (occasionally on Monday if things get busy).


Last year when we announced the possibility of Sinister Cinema shutting down, many longtime Sinister customers were aghast!  But as long as the company is profitable I plan on keeping it open.  So again, the fate of the company more or less rests in the hands of you, our devoted Sinister/Armchair Fiction patrons.  I must admit I was really surprised at the response we had in 2019.  And I can never thank you all enough!  So here’s what will happen:  First off, catalogs are kaput.  I won’t be doing a new one.  However, a flyer will be mailed soon that will more or less take the place of a new catalog.  Look for it around the end of February or the beginning of March.  It does indeed contain the 23 new DVD releases that would have been in a new catalog and it will also bring back—just like previous catalogs—the $98 Special.  It also has 16 new Armchair Fiction titles and all the new titles from last fall. So hang on to it!  This summer we’ll then have one final schedule of Drive-in Double Features.  Then in October we’ll have our usual autumn new releases.  As usual, we’ll bring back the $98 Special for the Holiday Season through mid-January, 2021. 

THEN... At the end of January we’ll either keep things open on a part time basis or shut the company down. It will all depend on the response.  But regardless of how it turns out, it’s been a unique privilege running this little mom-and-pop company all these years and a distinct pleasure serving all of you.  Thanks so much again!  Sincerely, Greg Luce. (and my loyal slaves, Kat & Mo)
