Boardman's Art Theatre
APRIL 21-25, 2004


This year we wanted to do something to recognize and promote the improvements made to the local art theater just around the corner from the Overlooked Film Festival's Virgina Theatre:  Boardman's Art Theatre.  Our efforts center on three approaches:

1) A sort of Best of Ebertfest, whereby we are bringing back American Movie and Coven for repeat performances at Boardman's Art Theatre (see schedule below)

2) Screening another current art house film that Roger has praised, the thrilling mountain climbing documentary Touching the Void (see schedule below)

3) Between screenings, Boardman's Art Theatre will be open to festival goers in order to demonstrate the theater's state-of-the art sound system and "smart cards" will be distributed at Ebertfest that can be used in Boardman's for a chance to win prizes (t-shirts; $50.00) and for ticket discounts at Boardman's

Starting Thursday, April 22 through Sunday, April 25:

Touching the Void - 10:30 a.m. 1:30 p.m. 4:30 p.m. 7:00 p.m.
American Movie - 9:30 p.m.
Coven - 11:45 p.m.

We encourage patrons of Ebertfest to support Boardman's and other art,  specialty, and historic theaters as they seek to survive and prosper alongside multiplex theaters.
