Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train" screens Monday at the AFI Silver in Silver Spring.

(May 30) H FOR HITCHCOCK If you find yourself with a little spare time this long weekend, there's Part II of AFI Silver's Alfred Hitchcock Retrospective. The second installment focuses on the legendary filmmaker's early Hollywood period and there are two screenings Monday: The half-farcical, half-suspenseful "Strangers on a Train" follows a tennis champ from New York to D.C. as he receives a startling proposition. And the rediscovered propaganda shorts "Aventure Malgache" and Bon Voyage show the Allied forces in top form.

(June 2-July 3) THE TENNESSEE CONTINUUM For another double dose from a legend the Washington Shakespeare Company has "Tennessee Continuum" through early July. Two of Tennessee Williams' one-act plays bring heartbreaking comedy and poignant character study to Arlington's Black Box Theatre.

(May 30-June 30) LIFE IN THE CITY Georgetown native Rodgers Naylor presents "Life in the City" at Georgetown's Thos. Moser DC Showroom through the end of June. The painter portrays District denizens going about their days with warm color and soft light.

Music: "Leaves of Millfield" by The Project Club
