(January 13) LIONS IN CHEVY CHASE The Avalon Theater in Chevy Chase, DC presents the latest in its Lions of Czech Film series. The movie, Guard No. 47, will be shown tomorrow night at 8. In this 2008 film, a railway guard reunites with his wife after World War I only to find the battlefields of love and passion equally punishing.

(January 15-February 21) MEMORY & IMAGINATION The DC Arts Center in Adams Morgan opens a new show this weekend called Memory Meets Imagination Halfway. The exhibit greets DC audiences during a reception Friday night from 7 to 9 p.m., and closes with a conversation with the artist, Adam De Boer, on February 21st. The show depicts social rituals set against the landscapes of Southern California and Mallorca, Spain, part psychological exploration, part historical narrative, with echoes of de Goya, Balthus and Fischl.

(Through February 4) IF "PLAN A" FAILS A new show at plan b gallery in DC's 14th Street corridor highlights two painters and a sculptor. Fresh new works are on display through February 4th. The casual, hip space provides a great place to check out the rain-washed canvases splashed with color and hidden meaning, and sci-fi sculptures that appear to be part space ship, part sea shell.
