By Published: February 27, 2019 4:00 AM CT

The Weekly Memphian is a partial guide to things happening in Memphis, recommended by Daily Memphian staff. This guide covers Feb. 27 - March 2.

Wednesday

“Don’t Look Now” at Studio on the Square: If you watched the Oscars on Sunday night, you might have noticed the name Nicolas Roeg in the “In Memoriam” section. The British filmmaker, best known for a series of art-house successes in the '70s, died in November. And Indie Memphis screens arguably his best-known and most fondly remembered work this week. “Don’t Look Now” (1973) is an atmospheric thriller adapted from a Daphne du Maurier story. It stars Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie as a married couple traveling to Venice after the accidental death of their daughter. Burying the lede: It includes one of the most famous sex scenes in cinema – graphic, artful and purposeful. – Chris Herrington

7 p.m. $10. 2105 Court Ave.

Thursday

“Music Is In The Air: A Concert with Marie-Stéphane Bernard” at the River Inn of Harbor Town: Bernard, an international opera singer from Paris, will perform her favorite arias and songs alongside classical pianist Angelo Râpan. Seating is limited, so reservations are required. You can make a night of it with a special two-course concert meal from Paulette’s. (Call 901-260-3300 for reservations.) – Elle Perry

7:30 p.m. $45, call 901-260-3333 for reservations. 50 Harbor Town Square.

Friday

“Apollo 11” at Paradiso Cinema Grill & IMAX: Fifty years ago this summer, the Apollo 11 mission made a giant leap for mankind. This moon mission gets the big screen treatment in a new documentary opening exclusively in IMAX, which incorporates recently discovered 65mm footage. – Herrington

Opens Friday for a full run. See malco.com for details.

“This Place, This Time”/“Reflections” by Siphne Sylve at Buckman Performing Arts Center: This new show from the Memphis-based DJ and visual artist is inspired by Nina Simone and her statement that artists must reflect the times. “This Place, This Time” follows that directive through sound and collage. The exhibition, in Buckman’s Levy Gallery, is free. The corresponding show, “Reflections,” includes video, images and suggested tracks. “Reflections” is free, with a $20 suggested donation and follows the opening reception. The exhibition will be on view until April 15.  – Perry

5-7 p.m. opening reception, 8 p.m. performance. 60 Perkins Ext.

Shawn Colvin at Germantown Performing Arts Center: What does folk singer Shawn Colvin have in common with Paul Simon, Billy Joel, Adele and U2? They’re among the 16 artists to win both a Grammy Record of the Year and Song of the Year for the same work. For Colvin, it came in 1998 for “Sunny Came Home.” She’d been making music for more than 20 years before this big moment and has been making music for more than 20 years since, collaborating over the years with artists such as Suzanne Vega, Buddy Miller and Steve Earle. Colvin’s GPAC show will feature ace local openers Amy LaVere & Will Sexton. – Herrington
