1. An entertainment apparatus, comprising:

  • a casing having a top edge region, a bottom edge region and two side edge regions interconnecting the top and bottom edge regions; and

    a frictional disc holder associated with an opening, wherein the frictional disc holder comprises two members adapted to receive an optically-readable disc therebetween and to apply friction to the optically-readable disc when received,wherein the friction is sufficient to prevent the optically-readable disc from falling out of the opening under the effect of gravity, and is insufficient to cause damage to the optically-readable disc or to prevent the optically-readable disc from being manually pushed past the two members either for receipt in a disc playing mechanism mounted within the casing or to remove the optically-readable disc from the entertainment apparatus upon ejection,wherein the top edge region, the bottom edge region, and the two side edge regions frame and define a front side of the entertainment apparatus, and the front side comprises a monitor screen,wherein the entertainment apparatus is adapted to play the optically-readable disc, and comprises the opening in the bottom edge region of the casing for receiving and ejecting the optically-readable disc in a substantially vertical plane,wherein the entertainment apparatus is adapted to be mounted to a more forward seat of a vehicle for use by a passenger when seated behind the more forward seat of the vehicle.
