The 1954 sci-fi/monster flick "Them!" is still a creepy good time thanks to some ants exposed to radiation; they are not happy about it. It's playing at 4pm on Saturday at the American Museum of the Moving Image, 35th Ave. at 36th Street, Astoria, 718.784.0077.

Michael Cunningham (The Hours, A Home at the End of the World) reads from the latter tonight at SummerStage, 7pm.

Starting tomorrow, Lee Bontecou gets her first major retrospective at MoMA QNS, through 9/27. The exhibition will include her sculptures, drawings, and suspended pieces, many of which have not been shown before.
