Things to do this weekend – the sizzle edition

Phew! Is it hot out there, or is it just us? Temperatures in the low 80s are forecast for Saturday-Sunday, which in ArtsPage HQ’s opinion, is just right for getting out and about.

Some ideas:

MOVIES

This weekend’s releases are aimed at all ages and tastes. In the “local hero” category is “Old Goats,” shot on Bainbridge Island with local folks, made on a shoestring budget by Taylor Guterson. You may know of his dad — novelist David Guterson. For the young’uns, there’s “ParaNorman,” about a lad who really does see dead people. Definitely NOT for families is William Friedkin’s “Killer Joe,” an NC-17 tale of murder-for-hire. For more reviews, go to seattletimes.com/entertainment.

SPORTS

The M’s, Storm and Sounders all have games at home this weekend: Subjects of King Felix can watch Seattle play Minnesota Friday-Sunday; it’s Sounders vs. Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday afternoon; and the Storm take on the Los Angeles Sparks on Saturday night. More sports: seattletimes.com/sports.

ARTS

Bellevue Arts Museum hosts another of its after-hours parties, BAMIgnite, 8-11 p.m. Friday. As if there needed to be a reason for a summer party, this one celebrates the opening of BAM’s new sculpture garden in the Court of Light, on the third floor. Info: www.bellevuearts.org. In Seattle, the Frye Museum — ‘always free,’ they remind visitors — has finished its renovations, which help improve visitor flow and show the art at greater advantage. Read about the changes and the exhibitions here. Over in Redmond, theatrical-spectacle creator Lucia Neare’s production of “Professor Pomme’s Pomp and Pastry Paradoxicals” will begin at Future Downtown Park at 4 p.m. Sunday and parade through town.
