New arrivals for the week of November 4, 2008


Hello Everyone,

This week was the week of box sets: Paul Newman, Jerry Lewis, Astaire & Rogers, Three Stooges and James Brown. The biggest release this week is "Get Smart" (with Steve Carrell as Maxwell Smart and Anne Hathaway as Agent 99). Other big titles include "Transsiberian" (with Woody Harrelson and Emily Mortimer) and "Flashbacks of a Fool" (with Daniel Craig... but not as James Bond). The latest Criterion release is "Missing". And, by the end of the week we should have "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (Season 3)" -- the controversial and important TV show from the late 60s.

Rentertainment (along with Parkland College, Electric Pictures, and a few others) is pleased to sponsor esteemed rock-n-roll poster artist Art Chantry's visit to Urbana-Champaign this week. There will be an exhibition of his work at the Parkland College Art Gallery, various lectures and a luncheon on Friday (tickets required and must be reserved by 5:00 on Wednesday). The open night reception will be at Parkland on Thursday (Nov 6th) from 6-8 with Art speaking at 7. In addition to the exhibition at Parkland, there will be a little post-reception party at Parasol Records (what I do when I'm not hanging around Renter). There will be acoustic performances by Angie Heaton, the New Ruins duo and a special set from former Wolfie and Like Young guy Joe Ziemba's new one-man-band Beaujolais. The public is welcome. Admission is free. This get-together will be Thursday night, November 6th, from 8:30 - 11:00 PM @ Parasol Records, 303 West Griggs St in downtown Urbana. Griggs Street intersects Race St between The Courier Cafe and Silvercreek Restaurant. Parasol will be tricked out (or at least semi-clean, or a little bit of both) and there will be snacks and drinks provided. For more information check out the official Art Chantry is coming to Parkland page: www.artchantry.parkland.edu

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
