--Let the movie awards season begin. "Slumdog Millionaire"--which IBJ A&E readers got a chance to see earlier this week (see your comments here)--was just named 2008's Best Film by the National Board of Review. See story here.

--Another potential cinematic award-winner is "Doubt." If you are interested in the original play--and missed it at the IRT last season--you can catch Cardinal Stage's upcoming production in Bloomington. Information here. I haven't seen any of Cardinal's work yet, but it's great to see efforts to bring professional regional theater to the area. 2009 also brings Cardinal's  production of "Having Our Say" (which, coincidentally, has also been seen at the IRT).

--It's been said that, in New York, critics can't stop a hit. They can, however, discover and help make one. But the number of critics there are dropping quickly. See story here. Will the lack of voices mean fewer discovers? And will that give even more power to the critic at the New York Times?

--For those looking forward to the 2009 Indianapolis International Film Festival, you'll have to look a little further forward. The fest will be held in the summer instead of spring. Which could mean films outdoor as well as indoor.

--Potentially fun news in the program of the American Cabaret Theatre: In May, ACT launches a late-night series with a Burlesque production.

--If you happen to stop by the Indiana Author Fair at the Indiana Historical Society this Saturday, please make it a point to say hello. I'll be there with about 90 other Indiana authors, including James Alexander Thom, Todd Tucker, Sam Stall and Phil Gulley.

Oh, and check out this week's Fox 59/IBJ A&E segment here.

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
