Things to Do

Where & When: What to Do Tonight

Foreign film, soccer, and a global-art exhibition make for an international agenda

Opening today at the Avalon Theatre in Chevy Chase DC is the Israeli comedy A Matter of Size, which follows four overweight men who embrace the sport of sumo wrestling and learn to love themselves in the process. It may not be the most conventional route to self-esteem, but the film won three Ophir Awards—the Israeli equivalent of the Oscars—and has secured Audience Awards at several film festivals around the world. Tickets ($10.50) are available here. Showtimes are 2, 5:45, and 8:15.

The United States may be out, but soccer fever rages on: the Soccer Mansion (2437 15th St., NW; 202-378-4578) continues broadcasting World Cup action today and tomorrow. Tonight enjoy a 7 PM Moët & Chandon cocktail party—the last at the mansion before the World Cup final. Click here for the full game schedule and tickets. Admission is $15 per game and includes one free drink.

Drop in to the opening reception for the Global Rhythm exhibition at Del Ray Artisans in Alexandria. Through July 18, the gallery displays two- and three-dimensional art inspired by various ethnicities, cultures, and landscapes. Light refreshments will be served. Free; 7 to 10.
