Definition

As movies became available in VHS format and then in VCD and now the wothla DVDs, the latest movies that are released in the theatres will be available in the black market (dimly lit pavement shops and in certain video parlours). However, these will be recorded in the theatre with a video camera and copies made. So you will typically get very poor quality video and audio and also enjoy all the conversations around as well as silhouettes of people walking in front of the camera.

Usage

Uncle do you have the latest batman movie? Last week I came and you said you had only screen print.
Video parlour uncle: No Minkey, still the original print is not released, try on Friday. If you want to try screen print, I'll give you discount.
