Silver Spring neighbors Abby Schindler Goldblatt and Nick Grant Barnes come together for a two-person show of metalwork at Bethesda’s Creative Partners Gallery. Originally from the United Kingdom, Mr. Barnes uses traditional and not-so-traditional metal techniques of fine gold and silver. For example, he uses a contemporary, unconventional shape of silver for his “Owzat Bowl” but lines the inside with 24-carat gold. By contrast, Miss Goldblatt makes her whimsical tabletop sculptures with enamel on copper. At Creative Partners Gallery, 4600 East-West Highway, Bethesda. Noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday through Jan. 31. 301/951-9441.

After several years of dwindling prospects, the choices available to art-house moviegoers in the Washington area continue to improve. Landmark Theatres follows up its successful Bethesda Row multiplex with the E Street Cinema, an underground renovation in the Lincoln Building at 555 11th Street NW. The new complex, whose entrance is on E Street, the nearest cross-street, consists of eight auditoriums, ranging from about 90 seats each to about 200. The theater will be participating in the bookings of certain new releases when it opens to the general public tomorrow: Big Fish, Girl With a Pearl Earring and Monster, for example. It will be the exclusive showcase for other specialty attractions, such as the revival of Gillo Pontecorvo’s tendentious classic of 1966, The Battle of Algiers, or the recent documentary feature about the life of Louis Kahn, My Architect: A Son’s Journey. Metro Center is the nearest subway stop and Gallery/Chinatown is also close. The management hopes to emerge as the most Metro-accessible movie theater in the area. Showtimes and tickets will be available through Moviefone at 333-FILM. The theater box-office can be reached at 202/783-9494.
