Default Poltergeist: Where is the main menu screen?

I just popped in Poltergest and realized it doesn't have a main menu area. Where you can choose your sound, the list of list of scenes, etc. It actually goes directly into the movie itself. When I hit "Top Menu" on my controller, it only gives me access to a special called "They Are Here: The Real World of Poltergeists", which is in two parts.

That's all fine and dandy, but I would like to have access to the audio or if I want to select a specific scene. Do they not have this option?

You probably have to use the pop-up menu to access those features. This is how WB does their Blu-rays.

i have yet to see a single WB title with a main menu screen. all of them pre-prompt directly into the movie, w/ the pop up menu being the only navigation.
