Where IS GreenCine (short-circuiting the return cycle)?

The return address indicates a zip code of 94120. But I can't find that anywhere in S.F. The reason I am curious is that I currently work in downtown S.F. and wonder how close I actually am from the place.

Yes yes yes. I saw the FAQ entry discouraging in-person dropping off the DVDs. I wonder how fast they'll get it if I mailed the DVDs at the same post office where the PO box is or close to it. (Picture a post office worker taking a piece of mail from the in box and immediately putting it into the PO box.)

The GC P. O. Box is, I believe, located in the San Francisco P&DC at 1300 Evans Avenue.

Yep, we work inside the SF Postal Center, deep in the purgatory-like dungeons far beneath the surface. ;-) No... seriously, that is where our mail goes out from. Where we actually work is in the 94103.

Are you cats afraid of stalkers? I mean not that I am stalking you, or anyone at GC... just, that, you know... if I "were" to "stalk" someone at GC, "hypotheically"... what would be the fastest route from SFO to GC given Saturday afternoon traffic in the Bay, say, "just for instance," tomorrow? "Hypothetically."

yeah, I'm just gonna stop talkin' now...

Um... I think I'm gonna stop talking now, too. ;-) Er, just in case, you know...

With IronS as a member all these years, stalker fear is rather useless. They know they can neither run nor hide.

I'll support Greencine in not actually letting us know where you are. Hey, as long as USPS knows where to bring you the DVDs, right?

I also work for a company, that I will not mention, that does not publicly disclose it's physical location and just has a PO Box. Postal service knows where we are and brings us our mail. I'm only allowed to tell people the city we are in. Yes, there is the stalker and dissatisfied customer situation we like to avoid, but also people who would look to try and steal our merchandise and company secrets. That's the real reason.

A while back, I noticed that some of GC's mailers actually had their "physical" return address on them. Don't know now, but let's just say it's not exactly "high rent" district. Maybe that's why they're there, for the cheap lease/rent. Although, with signs of gentrification, the neighborhood is (slightly) improving its image. (At least for the locals.)

As for faster receipt of your return disks, I always prefer dropping them off in an actual branch. GC usually receives them the next day. Or, if you're lucky enough to have your business' outgoing mail delivered to the processing center either here in downtown (somewhere on Main or Beale/Folsom or Harrison) or on Evans, it would be the same as dropping off in a branch.

Yes. I now drop them off in the Embarcadero post office. The post office picks up the mail @ noon. This usually gets them to GC the next morning.


I started going to the post office itself after actually having one of the DVDs lost on its way back to GC. So if any of you were waiting longer than usual for "Last House on the Left," that would be me.

Well. If it's any consolation, the movie wasn't that good (not to me anyway).

The mask is both a gift and a curse. I know I know, that's from a different mask, but it works.
