Get to It

A guide to help make your day

Going out

Cincinnati Pops: Erich Kunzel leads the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra through a high-energy Oktoberfest Zinzinnati concert full of yodeling, alphorns, polkas and singalongs and guest artists such as Sonnenschein Express, Kolping S”ngerchor and the Jack Frost Accordion Band. 7 p.m. today, Music Hall, $17.50-$48.50. 381-3300.

Jewish celebration: Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion celebrates the 350th Anniversary of Jews in America with a day full of family activities, kosher food, speakers and mini-workshops celebrating Jewish contributions to American life. 1-5 p.m. today, 3101 Clifton Ave., Clifton, most events free. 985-1534.

Antiques: More than 300 vendors haul out period furniture, vintage goods and collectibles at the Tri-State Antique Market. 7 a.m.-3 p.m. today, Lawrenceburg Fairgrounds, U.S. 50 and Argosy Parkway, Dearborn County, $3. 738-7256.

Homearama: Check out the latest in home design at the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati's "New Lifestyles Edition" home showcase. Noon-10 p.m. today and daily through next Sunday at Miami Bluffs in Hamilton Township, off Striker Road in Warren County, $8 (free under age 13). 851-6300.


Top pick: It was truly a revolutionary concept: Mexican General Francisco "Pancho" Villa (Antonio Banderas) finances his war against the government in 1914 by selling film rights to a U.S. studio, which produced a sympathetic documentary, as detailed in HBO's And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself (9:30 p.m., HBO).

• TV critic John Kiesewetter also says Biography devotes two hours to The Mary Tyler Moore Show (8 p.m., A&E), while The E! True Hollywood Story looks at Dr. Phil (9 p.m., E!).

The goods

Filming it: Itching to unleash your inner Tarantino? Check out Filmmaking for Dummies, (Wiley, $19.99) chockablock with advice on writing, casting, shooting, editing, financing, releasing and publicizing earnest novice stabs at the movie game. Author Bryan Michael Stoller wrote and directed the PG-rated Yasmeen Bleeth flick Undercover Angel as well as TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes. He also has been signed to co-direct They Cage the Animals at Night alongside neophyte director Michael Jackson (yes, that one).

Planning ahead

24 hours out: Culturefest 2003 has reps from more than 50 area arts organizations introducing their seasons, mini-performances, artist meet-n-greets, door prizes and more, 6-8 p.m. Monday, Rosenthal Center, Sixth and Walnut streets, downtown, free. 345-8400.

48 hours out: Military star Oliver North is at Joseph-Beth Booksellers to introduce his espionage-soaked novel The Jericho Sanction, a sequel to his best-selling Mission Compromised. 7 p.m. Tuesday, Rookwood Pavilion, Madison and Edwards roads, Norwood. 396-8960.
