Who lives here? May 9, 2015

Each week, The News-Gazette will show a screen shot of a home from a movie or TV show and ask readers, "Who lives here?"

Email your guess of a character who resides in the featured home to wholiveshere@news-gazette.com and we'll give a winner a shout-out on next week's page. Be sure to include your full name and town of residence. This week, we wrap up our boat series.

It's Camping season!

THIRD ANNUAL MICRO NIGHT

John Frayne: Show for the senses brings mixed reviews

Famous violinist Gil Shaham and filmmaker David Michalek brought to the Foellinger Great Hall on April 23 one of the most original and fascinating programs I have heard/seen there. Shaham, born in Urbana and raised in Israel, has become one of the most celebrated violinists in the world.

Notes-Worthy: Laura Howard of the Rodeo Club

Terry Brown of CU Bands and Fans talks with Laura Howard of the Rodeo Club at the University of Illinois. The Orange and Blue Rodeo Roundup for Wounded Warrior Project was held May 2 at the Champaign County Fairgrounds in Urbana.

What exactly is the Orange and Blue Rodeo Roundup?

Frank's Faves, May 7, 2015

With a legion of new superhero movies on the way, including this summer's "Avengers: Age of Ultron," "Ant-Man" and a new "Fantastic Four," forgive this overgrown fanboy, but I just gotta ask: What are your five favorite superhero movies?

Summaries and mini-reviews of movies playing now, from e3 magazine:

Chuck Koplinski: 'Roar' perilous folly of epic proportions

I'm always suspect when someone makes a claim like, "You've never seen a movie like this," or "There will never, ever be a movie like this again."

Yet, that's exactly what Tim League, the founder and CEO of Drafthouse Films, writes regarding Noell Marshall's "Roar," a film the independent distributor is rolling out to a limited number of theaters before a home video release.

Blockbuster season cometh

OK, it doesn't seem like summer yet, but the season has already started with "The Avengers: The Age of Ultron."

So just when the sun comes out, it's time to spend a couple hours in the dark with multimillion-dollar movies, including some very popular franchises — including "Mad Max," not seen since "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" in 1985.
