Real winter: Palmer’s The White World at the Albany Institute of History and Art.

Take Me Out opens tomorrow (Friday, Jan. 19) at Capital Repertory Theatre (111 N. Pearl St., Albany). For more info, call the box office at 445-7469.

AT LEAST WE CAN SEE IT IN A MUSEUM Old man winter has been, shall we say, scarce around these parts. While we have enjoyed a few dustings of the white stuff lately, and a bone-snapping cold is said to be rushing in from Canada as this is typed, we haven’t experienced much that could be called “winter” this year. Blame global warming, or snow gods angry over our inveterate sun-worshipping tendencies, but the best place to enjoy the beauty of winter lately has been at the Albany Institute of History and Art. Since Dec. 9, the exhibit Snow Scenes, a collection of landscapes by Walter Launt Palmer, has been delighting those looking for lovely evocations of the real thing. And Palmer was a master: His 1910 essay “The Painting of Snow” was widely admired. The exhibit will continue at the AIHA (125 Washington Ave., Albany) through February 25 in the Jabbur Gallery. For more info, call the museum at 463-4478.

FILMMAKERS OF TOMORROW, TODAY A group of intrepid Albany High School students have had a short film, Hello (Insert Name Here), accepted into the Paris Student Film Festival. Let us clarify: This would be Paris, France, not Paris, (insert state name here) U.S.A. You can check out a sampling of the students’ efforts tonight at Albany’s Madison

Theatre, in the Mixed Greens Film Festival. The filmmakers are Erik Carman, Alex Greenhut, Adam Gutta, Phil Neuffer and Julian Guarino. The Mixed Greens Film Festival will be held tonight (Thursday, Jan. 25) at 7 and 9 PM at the Madison Theatre (1036 Madison Ave., Albany). Admission is $5. For more info about the screening, call 438-0040. For info about the Paris film fest, visit www.parisfilm

IT’S OSCAR TIME The Saratoga Film Forum has announced the details of their annual Oscar Night Benefit. It will be held at Sargo’s at the Saratoga National Golf Club on Feb. 25—Academy Awards night, natch. There will be hors d’oeuvres from 6:30 to 8 PM, and a light supper from 8 to 9:30 PM. Of course, there will be a big screen so you can enjoy the glamour of the glittering nominees and ignore host Ellen DeGeneres’ expected bombing on the actual Oscars broadcast. This is Saratoga Film Forum’s big fund-raising event, so your $65 admission is well worth it. Make reservations by contacting the SFF at 584-FILM or visiting
