Sony Modified Screen (1995-2006)

Modified Screen: A black screen fades in reading: "This film has been modified from its original version. It has been formatted to fit this screen." It fades out after a few seconds.

FX/SFX: Just the simple fade in and fade out.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Common, as this can be found on all Sony Pictures VHS tapes until the format's end in 2006, and many full-screen DVD releases (including The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland, which was solely available in the full-screen format, Stuart Little, Matilda, and many others). However, this format screen makes a surprise appearance on the PlayStation Portable UMD video of The Karate Kid (2010), also bundled with LittleBigPlanet.

Scare Factor: None.
