Trademark and Domain Names to Be Sold in Bankruptcy Proceedings

Movie Gallery Inc., the video rental chain that filed for bankruptcy protection and began shutting down their US operations in February is looking to sell their customer base, trademarks and about 160 corresponding domain names.

The domain names and brands include:

  • reel.com
  • MovieGallery.com
  • HollywoodVideo.com
  • GameCrazy.com
  • HollywoodTelevision.net
  • Movies4Less.com
  • GoToHollywood.com

The sites currently all have a single page website stating that “the company is in the process of exploring new ways of delivering entertainment to you and we anticipate that this website will be under new ownership shortly“. For more information the sites refer interested parties Jack Hazan or Gabe Fried at Streambank LLC and links to a PDF listing some additional information about the company.

“Millions of consumers have been renting their movies from Movie Gallery and Hollywood Video for more than 20 years,” Gabe Fried, founder and managing principal of the asset advisory firm Streambank LLC, said today in a statement. “These have proven to be trustworthy brands.” Movie Gallery hired Streambank in June, according to the statement.
