In re: the question of HOOP DREAMS' release, it is scheduled to start at
the arthouse Uptown Theatre in Minneapolis next weekend (Nov. 4).  I
assume it has equivalent release dates at other arthouses.  Last week,
there was a trailer shown *heavily* touting it on the local PBS outlet, so
I assume that there is a tie-in and that it will air on PBS stations
BTW,  Siskel and Ebert heavily promoted the film when it was just making
the festival circuit and the other week gave it another solid 2 thumbs
up.  I guess they like it.
