New arrivals for the week of August 14, 2012
Art Is...
The Hunger Games
The Raid
Les Vampires

Greetings all,

There's just over a week left of tranquility before they open the floodgates on I-57 and this town starts hopping again. I, for one, am looking forward to it! New arrivals this week include: "Art is... the Permanent Revolution" (w/Sigmund Abeles, etcher; Ann Chernow, lithographer; Paul Marcus, woodcutter; and James Reed, master printer), "The Hunger Games" (this actually comes out on Saturday; w/Jennifer Lawrence, Willow Shields, Elizabeth Banks and Josh Hutcherson), "The Raid: Redemption" (w/Iko Uwais, Doni Alamsyah and Ananda George) and "Les Vampires" (1915, directed by Louis Feuillade, 2-Disc Kino Classics Edition). There were also a handful of TV releases: Community S3, Glee S3 and Dexter S6. Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

This week's Top 100 list is a combination of two sections: Performing Arts (we've got almost 150 titles tucked away in the back of the store) and Opera (with over 60 titles -- right by the PA section). Even so, we only have 54 titles that have rented at least once in the last year. Btw, for a complete list of the operas we stock (with a short description and box art), click here. In any case, here they are, the Top 10 rentals from the Performing Arts and Opera sections:
1) THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR (PA)
2) 1776 (PA)
3) MEMPHIS (PA)
4) JOFFREY: MAVERICKS OF AMERICA DAN (PA)
5) SUNDAYS IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE (PA)
6) JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOL... (PA)
7) A MADEA CHRISTMAS: THE PLAY (PA)
8) COMPANY (2007) (PA)
9) BARYSHNIKOV, MIKHAIL: PLACE (PA)
10) GHOSTLIGHT (PA)
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Remember: Rentertainment is still in Summer Hours mode. We will be open Monday-Saturday from 11am to 10pm and Sundays from noon - 10pm... plan accordingly.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
