New arrivals for the week of January 6, 2009


Happy New Year Everyone!

The best news of the year so far is that Roger Ebert has confirmed he'll be showing Urbana native Nina Paley's "Sita Sings the Blues" at this year's Ebertfest. If you want to see it, you'd better get in line now for tickets -- this one is going to be hot! No word yet on what else might Mr Ebert might be showing but you'll still be able to find me in my usual seat by the aisle. In other great news of 2009, Moises Kaufman's "33 Variations" (now starring Jane Fonda as musicologist, Katherine) will be at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre on Broadway (that's New York) from February 9 through May 29. You may recall some of the early work on this play was done right here at the U of I (and a lot of the current re-writing is being filtered through local sources). This is a fabulous play. So, if you find yourself in the area make sure to go.

Just under two more weeks of slightly different hours for winter break. Sunday through Thursday we'll close at 10:00 (instead of midnight), Friday's and Saturday's we'll still close at Midnight. We'll go back to normal hours on January 16th when everyone else gets back to town.

Happy New Year, everyone... be safe, be warm, be happy.

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
