New arrivals for the week of May 5, 2009


Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest news is that "Sita Sings the Blues" is coming to Boardman's Art Theater (May 15-21, daily showings at 5:00, 7:00, and 9:15 plus an early show on Saturday and Sunday at 2:30). Ebert showed a digital copy at this year's Ebertfest but Nina tells us that Boardman's will be using a 35mm print -- providing more vivid color and surround sound (remember, the Art has the best sound system in the area). As a special treat, there will be a Q & A with the director's parents (Jean and Hiram Paley) following the Friday 7:00 and Saturday 2:30 screenings. Now we can get the real dirt on what went into making this film. I saw Sita at Ebertfest and plan to see it at least one more time at the Art... you should, too. For more information about the film check out the official website (www.sitasingstheblues.com).

May is National Bike Month, May 11th -15th is Bike-to-Work Week, and May 15th is officially Bike-to-Work Day. So, even if you can't ride to work every day, or even for a whole week, maybe you can join all the other commuters for just one day on the 15th. Also, May 20th is the "Ride of Silence" -- to honor people who have been injured or died in bicycle accidents. This year's ride will be 8 miles and will leave from the Assembly Hall parking lot at 7pm. And, the Illini 4000 leave in just three weeks. They'll be passing through here on June 16th -- I'll fill you in on details soon so you can plan to ride into town with them.

This week's DVD highlights include "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", "Last Chance Harvey", and "Incendiary". Also, Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner, "Good Dick", about "the relationship between a lonely introverted girl and a young video store clerk vying for her attention" -- sound familiar? On BluRay you can finally re-live the fabulous seventies in glorious 1080p HD by watching "Saturday Night Fever" again... ah, memories.

That's it for now. Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
