Mikey G's Weekend Entertainment Picks


This weekend's top arts and entertainment picks around town, from the guy who's paid to pick them: Friday: There aren't too many old-school toys that deliver like Silly Putty. Can you shape Lincoln Logs into a ball and bounce it off the wall? No, you can't. The artists behind the new Silly Putty exhibit found another use for the versatile silicone-plastic blob: a putt-putt course. Play a few rounds at Parish Hall tonight. Saturday: In the Cannes hit Climates, director Nuri Bilge Ceylan gets his Ingmar Bergman on in a film about isolation and relationship dysfunction. The Cleveland Cinematheque screens the moody film tonight. And watch out for a disturbing sex scene, in which Ceylan fucks with viewers' perception of the onscreen action. Sunday: Like the smell of new cars but don't have the cash to actually buy one? Then head on over to the I-X Center, where the Cleveland Auto Show is parked for the next week. When you're done checking out the 800-plus cars, trucks, and SUVs, say hi to Slider, who'll be signing autographs. --Michael Gallucci
