“Hauling the Gill Net” is part of Another Frontier: Frederic Remington’s East at Sid Richardson Museum.

Wednesday 12 – It’s hard to believe that 53 years ago in The Sound of Music, Christopher Plummer was already playing the father of teenagers, and he’s still around now, racking up Oscar nominations. You can marvel at his longevity while watching him in Robert Wise’s musical, which adapted a not-terribly-distinguished stage show into a film that still ranks among the most popular hits of all time. The movie screens at 2pm and 7pm at various theaters. Check Calendar for showtimes. Tickets are $12.50. Call 818-761-6100.

Thursday 13 – If you saw Wonderstruck, you know that museums used to be called “cabinets of curiosity” or “cabinets of wonder,” before such exhibits spilled out of boxes and filled entire rooms and eventually buildings. Fort Worth Museum of Science and History’s Pop-Up Curiosity Shoppe revives that old spirit of compiling odd objects that can give rise to conversations. The show runs indefinitely at 1600 Gendy St, FW. Admission is $12-15. Call 817-255-9300.

Friday 14 – A bunch of women taking revenge on their misogynistic bully of a boss? It’s a musical for the #MeToo era, but 9 to 5: The Musical is based on the 1980 movie and set in that era. Thankfully, the show also retains Dolly Parton’s delightful old songs, as well as featuring new ones that she wrote for the stage adaptation. The show runs today thru Oct 7 at Theatre Arlington, 305 W Main St, Arlington. Tickets are $21-23. Call 817-275-7661.

Call 817-852-6887.

Monday 17 – Frederic Remington is known as a Western artist, but he was actually from Ogdensburg, N.Y., and made much of his art there, though he traveled extensively in the West. The Frederic Remington Art Museum in his hometown now organizes Another Frontier: Frederic Remington’s East, a show of his non-Western works that runs Fri thru Sep 8, 2019, at Sid Richardson Museum, 309 Main St, FW. Admission is free. Call 817-332-6554.
