ART OF FILM

   The Miami Beach Cinematheque kicks off Art Basel week with film installation "Ruins" by Dinorah de Jesus Rodriguez starring Anita Ponton. Projected images will appear intermittently on varying surfaces, tables and walls, to form a fragmented narrative conveying the story of a woman trapped inside the ruins of a timeless place who haunts a café with her bizarre perceptions regarding the outside world and her notions of what might be going on here. Alongside this installation, a preview of the next installment in the pulp, noir sci-fi saga "The Beach Chronicles" by Kevin Sharpley and Gianfranco Bianchi is shown. 7 p.m. "Ruins." 7:30 p.m. "The Beach Chronicles." Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Free. Details: www.mbcinema.com.

But the resulting strain on his marriage and tension within the community doesn’t compare to Curtis’ private fear of what his dreams may truly signify. He confides in Samantha, testing the power of their bond against the highest possible stakes. 9 p.m. Additional screenings through Dec. 4.
