New arrivals for the week of June 24, 2014
300: Rise of an Empire
Enemy
Repentance
Winter's Tale

Greetings everyone,

Downtown Urbana is seeing some changes this summer. The Urbana Butcher Shop just had their last weekend of regular business but watch for some exciting pop-up restaurants to appear in the space soon. Error Records has begun construction in the space formerly occupied by Eclectic Arts Collective (and I hear a skate shop will be there, too). Masijta Grill (Korean BBQ) has opened in the old Morning Cup & More space. Signage has appeared in the window of Dancing Dog Eatery & Juicery -- hopefully their opening won't be too far behind. And, the Curbanas are almost in place in front of Crane Alley and Flying Machine/Pizza M -- more outdoor seating in Downtown Urbana FTW!

This week's biggest new releases this week include: "300: Rise of an Empire" (w/Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green and Lena Headey), "Enemy" (w/Jake Gyllenhaal), "Repentance" (w/Forest Whitaker, Anthony Mackie, Mike Epps and Sanaa Lathan) and "Winter's Tale" (w/Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay and Russell Crowe). New additions to the TV section include "Bob's Burgers S3", "Boondocks S4", "The Bridge S1", "Jack Taylor S2", "Masters of Sex S1", "Unforgettable S2" and "Withes of East End S1". And, Criterion released the Beatles in "A Hard Day's Night" (1964). You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Regular Summer Hours: Monday-Thursday 11-9, Friday-Saturday 11-10 and Sunday noon-8.

Now that the Photography & Photographers films have their own section (and their own Top 100 listing), this week's list contain only films from the Arts & Artists section -- covering painting, graffiti, crafts, architecture, drawing, graphic design and more. Once again, Paul Cox's "Vincent: The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh" (1987) is the top renter from the section followed by Banksy's film, "Exit Through the Gift Shop". Newcomer "Cutie and the Boxer" (2013) takes home the yellow ribbon. The rest of the list is filled by the likes of Max Ernst, Antonio Gaudi, Alexander Calder, the PBS series "Art: 21" and "Craft in America" . You will find a lot of interesting and inspirational documentaries in the Arts & Artists section, here are the top renters:
1 VINCENT: LIFE AND DEATH OF... (1987)
2 EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP (DVD)
3 CUTIE AND THE BOXER (DVD)
4 SEMI COLIN (DVD)
5 FAR OUT ISN'T FAR ENOUGH (DVD)
6 FOLD CRUMPLE CRUSH (DVD)
7 ANTONIO GAUDI (DVD)
8 CALDER, ALEXANDER (DVD)
9 CRAFT IN AMERICA: CROSSROADS (DVD)
10 HELVETICA (DVD)
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
