6 wintry warmers for your weekend

The forecast is calling for snow in the mountains and rain and wind below. But don’t let that keep you at home. Here are six things to do, out and about, that will warm you — body and soul.

But first, a peek at Warren Miller’s snowy new ski movie (see #6, below), to put you in a wintry mood:

1 'Mockingjay' at Cinerama

Come in out of the cold to the fire-engine red interior of the newly refurbished Cinerama. The movie showing now — the laboriously titled “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I” — may not be the best in the series, says movie critic Moira Macdonald. But prepared to be wowed by the Cinerama experience: Great images, great sound and comfier seats than in the past.

2 'Mary Poppins'

In Issaquah through Jan. 4; in Everett Jan. 9-Feb. 8 (villagetheatre.org).

This heartwarming P.L. Travers tale is now on stage in a musical version at Village Theatre — spoonful of sugar and all. And yes, Miss Mary really flies, reports Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson. Also fun for families: “Dick Whittington and His Cat” at Seattle Children’s Theatre (see the same link for a review).

3 Yulefest

Saturday-Sunday, Nordic Heritage Museum, 3014 N.W. 67th St., Seattle (206-789-5707 or nordicmuseum.org).

One of the first festivals of the holiday season features Scandinavian music, arts and crafts, a visit from Santa and mugs of steaming glögg. Read more about it — plus annual gingerbread house and teddy bear displays — in Madeline McKenzie’s preview article.

4 Trans-Siberian Orchestra

3 and 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22, at KeyArena, Seattle; $31.50-$69.50 (800-745-3000 or ticketmaster.com).

Pyrotechnics, lasers and lights add heat to a progressive-rock opera about a young child finding treasures in an old house on Christmas Eve. Read Tom Keogh’s preview for details.

5 Hecho

7314 Greenwood Ave. N., Seattle (206-588-1919 or hechoinseattle.com).

This cozy, candlelit restaurant in Greenwood features spicy food and smoky drinks. Restaurant critic Providence Cicero walks you through the menu, dish by dish.

6 Warren Miller's 'No Turning Back'

8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at McCaw Hall, 7:30 p.m. Nov. 25 and 26 at Kirkland Performance Center (skinet.com/warrenmiller/events/wa).

If all else fails: Embrace the snow. But do it in the warm confines of McCaw Hall, where Warren Miller’s latest powder thriller plays on Friday and Saturday nights. Next week, it shows (snows?) at Kirkland Performance Center. Hot dog!
