BRAD OSWALD Ñ TV

Fox has the 411 on Rihanna 777

Part documentary and part promotional video, the hour-long special Rihanna 777 (which airs Monday, May 6 on Fox) follows the music superstar as she takes a Boeing 777 filled with fans and media on a seven-day tour through seven countries, in which she performs seven shows aimed at promoting her seventh album, Unapologetic. What time does it air? Why, 7 p.m., of course.

Angels in the Architecture

The trouble-plagued Cube stage in Old Market Square is just spitting distance from Cinematheque. But that doesn't stop the art-house cinema from celebrating the art of architecture next week with the Architecture + Design Film Festival. It runs May 8-11, showcasing films about more functional works such as Bird's Nest: Herzog and de Meuron in China, a film about the five-year construction of the 100,000-seat National Stadium in Beijing prior to the Olympic Games in Beijing. Check out www.winnipegcinematheque.com for the program.

MORLEY WALKER / CULT HEROES

Separating the movie men from the boys

Some of us are looking forward to the new Hollywood adaptation of The Great Gatsby. And others can hardly wait for the Brad Pitt zombie blockbuster World War Z. But the real film fans in town are on tenterhooks for the May 15 Cinematheque screening of Survival Lessons: The Greg Klymkiw Story. Of course, if you don't recall Klymkiw, right, from his glory days in Winnipeg as a producer, actor and general provocateur, you are either charmingly youthful or you don't really care about local film culture.

KEVIN PROKOSH / THEATRE

Don't turn off your cellphones

A handful of American theatres are experimenting with allowing some audience members to tweet their opinions of plays, operas and ballets from their back-row seats during performances. Management is so desperate to engage the digital generation and maintain its dwindling pop-culture relevance that they are willing to raise the ire of most of their other patrons by setting aside tweet seats. If that were to become a widely applied policy, theatres would lose far more ticket-buyers than would be gained.
