Friday, April 6 

TRIANGLEWIDE
GRINDHOUSE
A THEATER NEAR YOU—Actually, some of us may have just about had enough of Quentin Tarantino and his BFF Robert Rodriguez. There's no doubting their unconditional love for sleazy cinematic thrills—like women-in-prison movies—but it's an open question how much appetite audiences have for devotional three-hour double features, even if the titles are Planet Terror and Death Proof. Recently, Black Snake Moan attempted to exploit that 1970s drive-in movie niche on the strength of the lubriciously photographed Christina Ricci and the sight of Samuel L. Jackson wielding a git-tah and his usual righteous anger. That film sank without a trace, but that's no reason to underestimate the showmanship of QT and Rodriguez. —David Fellerath

RALEIGH
FIRST FRIDAY
VARIOUS VENUES—Be the first to see new art and exhibit openings tonight in Raleigh during First Friday. At 6 p.m. the N.C. Museum of Natural Science's new exhibit Shimmer of Silver, Warmth of Wood will open with a reception, and at 7 p.m., the museum will show the 1946 "horror" film The Flying Serpent. For more fantastical reptiles, check out the opening of The Dinosaur Show at 7 p.m. at DesignBox Gallery. Also, starting at 6 p.m., Artspace will host receptions and gallery walks in Gallery 1 and 2, the Lobby and the Upfront Gallery. Meanwhile, up in Cameron Village, Ten Thousand Villages hosts the exotic sounds of the sitar and the tabla tonight at 7 p.m. And be sure to take this opportunity to visit the soon-to-close Bickett Gallery (see page 44). —Iesha Brown
