The American Film Institute Silver Theatre begins retrospective tributes to actor Sean Connery and director Robert Altman this weekend. Mr. Connery is the latest recipient of the AFI’s Life Achievement Award. Mr. Altman received an honorary career Academy Award at this year’s Oscar ceremony.

The programs continue through early July. In this phase Mr. Connery’s credits outside his James Bond role will be showcased, starting tomorrow with his Oscar-winning performance in The Untouchables and Saturday with a revival of The Name of the Rose. Next weekend brings The Molly Maguires and The Man Who Would Be King. The management expects to revive the Bond titles in the fall to coincide with the opening of the new version of “Casino Royale.”

The Altman series also anticipates the opening of the director’s latest feature, “A Prairie Home Companion,” on June 9. The AFI survey begins with showings of The Player tomorrow through Monday, Gosford Park Saturday through Tuesday and Buffalo Bill and the Indians Sunday and Monday. MASH and California Split are set for the following weekend.

The AFI Silver is at 8633 Colesville Road in Silver Spring. Tickets are $7.50 to $9.25. 301/495-6700.
