Our pretend spring has fled the scene, so this holiday weekend seems well-suited to indoor activities. Here are a few:
—Movies: For kids — and everyone who remembers Mary Norton’s “The Borrowers” series — there’s the animated “The Secret World of Arrietty”; for rom-com fans, there’s “This Means War” and for documentaryphiles, there’s “Man on a Mission.” To read reviews, go here.

—Seattle Home Show: Inspiration and information about homes and gardens can be found at the show, which begins Saturday at CenturyLink Field Events Center. Details here.
—Free exhibits: In recognition of Japanese-American Day of Remembrance, admission to Seattle Asian Art Museum will be free on Sunday. That is also the last day of the wonderful exhibition, “Painting Seattle: Kamekichi Tokita and Kenjiro Nomura.” Read a review of the exhibition here. Also: The Frye Art Museum (free every day) has three exhibitions opening this weekend, by Susie J. Lee, Li Chen and “Beloved: Pictures at an Exhibition” curated by longtime museum visitor Frieda Sondland.

—Theater: “Tartuffe,” Moliere’s takedown of religious hypocrisy and social climbing, is at Taproot Theatre through March 3. Read a review here. Also continuing: “Oklahoma!” at 5th Avenue (review here) and “I Am My Own Wife” at Seattle Rep (review here). There’s still time to catch “The Odd Couple” at Village Theatre in Issaquah, too.
And — just added at 1:54 p.m. — even more ideas, here:
