    The first time I saw Tron was at a friends house for a sleepover. They rente one of those movie disk machines where the movie was stored on a vinyl recor and you had to flip it over halfway through the movie. What was that format called?

    Laserdisc, they were basically large CDs that held Video and Audio. This was before MPEG2 compression came about. Back then it was superior to VHS/Betamax, but expensive. Never got out of the nich/hobbyist market I think. People still collect them today, unfortunatly no one makes the players anymore.
