LENINGRAD COWBOYS

   In the late ’80s, Aki Kaurismäki fashioned a tale about a US tour by the worst rock-and-roll band in the world. "Leningrad Cowboys Go America" tells of the fictional band by the same name that became a genuine attraction, touring the world. Mr. Kaurismäki made a feature film, with the struggling Siberian rock band leaving its homeland to tour the US. The film brought the fictional band a major real-life following, so much so that the band is still touring and has a brand new album release: "Buena Vodka Social Club." In Finnish and English with English subtitles. 8 p.m. Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. $8 members. $9 seniors and students. $10 others. Details: (305) 673-4567 or info@mbcinema.com or www.mbcinema.com.

HITCHCOCK TRIBUTE

   The UM Bill Cosford Cinema hosts a two-day Alfred Hitchcock mini-festival featuring "Pyscho" and "Rear Window." The former tells of Marion, an unhappy secretary who flees with $40,000 in stolen cash. But after paranoia and exhaustion set in, she stops for the night at the Bates Motel, where she meets Norman Bates and is caught in the middle of a mind-bending thriller. The latter follows photojournalist L.B. Jeffries, who is confined to his tiny courtyard apartment because of a broken leg. The binocular-wielding Jeffries stares through the rear window of his apartment at goings-on in the other apartments around his courtyard. Soon he’s tangled in a web of paranoia, danger and mystery. 7 p.m. for both films. Rear Window screens on Nov. 12. Bill Cosford Cinema at the University of Miami, 1111 Memorial Drive, Coral Gables.
