Most of us have preconceptions of what summer in Europe is like, and they often involve words like “romantic,” “lingering,” “delicious.” See if your notions match those of the characters in the “Summer Dreams: Great Expectations” film series, which continues tonight at 6:30 at the Goethe-Institut (812 7th St. NW) and runs Mondays through Aug. 27. Tickets ($4 to $6) available on-site or at www.boxofficetickets. com/goethe. 202/289-1200. www.goethe.de/washington.
