New arrivals for the week of October 26, 2010
The Girl Who Played with Fire
Sex and the City 2
Winters Bone

Greetings everyone,

This weeks three biggest new releases are: "The Girl who Played with Fire" (#2 of 3 from Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy novels), "Sex and the City 2" (hopefully not #2 of 3, w/Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon) and "Winter's Bone" (w/Jennifer Lawrence). Also new this week: "Arbuckle & Keaton Volume 1" (we'll get volume 2 soon), "Overdose: The Next Financial Crisis" (this month's Ironweed film) and "Who is Harry Nilsson" (an awesome documentary about an amazing musician). On BluRay we got the Aliens Anthology (the complete quadrilogy) and the "Back to Future" trilogy. Check out the complete listing to see all the new titles from this week.

The fifth film in the Global Lens series will be shown at the University YMCA this Thursday. This week's film is "Masquerades" (Dir: Lyes Salem, Algeria, 2008, 92 minutes, Arabic w/subtitles in English). In all, ten films will be shown, one each Thursday at 5:30. Admission is free. More information can be found on the University YMCA web-site.
