The rats, one hopes, will be limited to the big screen. The newly renovated and expanded Jerusalem Cinematheque prepared itself this week for the start the 24th Jerusalem Film Festival, which kicks off Thursday evening with an outdoor screening of Ratatouille, the rodent-infested new hit from computer animation powerhouse Pixar. The festival, which will screen some 200 movies from 45 countries, concludes July 14 with the awarding of its top prizes, the Wolgin Awards for Best Israeli Feature and Documentary. However moviegoers respond to the films, many are also likely to take notice of the refurbished Cinematheque, where contractors have raced against the calendar since last summer to complete renovations in time for the start of this year's festival. Work has already begun on the second phase of the Cinematheque's $12 million facelift: the construction of a new wing that will house an additional movie theater, more space for Cinematheque archives and offices for its management. The project is expected to conclude next summer. • Jerusalem Post staff
