We will not be meeting this evening to see “The Closet”. I have sent email to those of you I have an address for, and have called everyone on my phone list. Hopefully this message will catch up with whoever I may have missed. As I said in the email, we can decide at our next film club meeting, on May 20th, whether we want to try to reschedule the film or possibly make it one of our 2014 film picks.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

We have just received permission from the filmmakers of the PBS Senior Olympics documentary Age of Champions to allow our patrons to view it for free online from Thursday, April 18th through Friday, April 26th. Here’s what Kari Marboe, Communications Director for the documentary has to say about this new film:

Age of Champions is the story of five competitors up to 100 years old who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. The Washington Post called the film “infectiously inspiring” and theater audiences across the country have fallen in love with its light-hearted take on growing older.

We’re sharing the entire film for free during the national online premiere, April 18 – 28, to start a positive conversation about aging and inspire people of all ages to be healthier, happier, and more active. The film will broadcast on PBS in July 2013.

The filmmakers partnered with organizations including the National Institute on Aging, Osher Center and the President’s Council on Fitness to share the entire documentary for free during the film’s national premiere.

For this month, we will be running our special header to commemorate the life of legendary film critic, Roger Ebert.

As we meet here online and at the library as fans of film, I’m taking a moment here to provide links to the books we have by and about him at Lisle Library, and sites that pertain to Roger Ebert. I’d also like to encourage followers of Just Between Frames, to share their thoughts on Roger Ebert, his film critiques, Ebertfest, or other stories that show your connection to this great Chicago film fan.

Ebertfest, also called The [15th] Annual Roger Ebert Film Festival, will be going ahead this month from April 17th to the 21st, click the graphic below

Ebertfest - The 15th Annual Roger Ebert Film Festival to go to the web site for it. Perhaps you can attend — a great way to remember him and celebrate his love of the movies.
