If you're tired of all the political song and dance routines of the primary campaigns, you have a chance to experience the real thing — at least, real song and dance — when The News-Gazette Film Series shows the 1933 Warner Bros. musical "42nd Street" at the Virginia Theatre in downtown Champaign on Saturday at 1 and 7 p.m.
Each week on this page, 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 email@example.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.
