New arrivals for the week of April 22, 2008

Hello Everyone,

Ebertfest is upon us! Tickets for some of the shows are already sold out but a quick call to the ticket office (356-9063) ought to let you know which you can still get into. If you show up 30 minutes early to the sold out shows you may still get in. They say they have never turned anyone away. More information on Ebertfest, the films and the guests can be found on the official web site (www.ebertfest.com). See you opening night for four hours of Hamlet.

Charity bike ride this Saturday! Students For A Better World (a University High School Student Club) Spring Bike Ride to benefit A Woman's Fund. Here's the nitty gritty: 3 Routes, 16.9 miles, 45.6 miles, and 67.2 miles (according to the gmap-pedometer). Registration is from 8am to 1pm, $15 for the first rider, $10 for the second, $5 for the first two kids and free after that. Maps will be provided. Routes will be SAG supported for the entire duration of the ride, and there will be rest stops with food. All routes will be marked. The ride registration is on the East side of Lincoln Square Mall. Sounds like fun!

I finally watched Juno last night -- excellent! and an amazing soundtrack, to boot. This week's new gems include a six-DVD box set of Werner Herzog documentaries and short films (www.wernerherzog.com), a semi-legit copy of "el Norte" on DVD, and a whole stack of Richard Dreyfus films that apparently "fills a huge gap in our collection" (don't ask).

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
