Well-Preserved Flick

Stephen Summers borrows tricks from the Indiana Jones trilogy in his new release, "The Mummy." Brendan Fraser and a host of athletic scholars of ancient hieroglyphics cheerfully battle against a very evil Egyptian priest whom they accidentally resurrect. Taken with a grain of salt, this hi-tech movie is great fun to watch. "The Mummy" plays Wednesday in English at 10 a.m., 12:20, 2:30, 5, 7:30 and 10 p.m at Kodak Cinema World, 2 Nastasiinsky Pereulok. Tel. 209-4359. Nearest metro: Tverskaya.

History Is a Grind

For a clearer idea of the century's advances, "Millstones of History," a two-week exhibit opening Wednesday at the Novy Manezh, is the key. The work on show by 20th-century Russian artists includes photographs, paintings and a 3-meter silver cross. At 5 p.m. Wednesday come to a talk entitled "Photography: Evidence and Memory." The gallery is at 3 Georgiyevsky Pereulok, and is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tel. 292-4459. Nearest metro: Okhotny Ryad.

Brecht on Moscow Stage

A work of great artistic and social importance, Bertolt Brecht's "The Threepenny Opera" plays Wednesday at the Satirikon Theater. Mack the Knife and his exploits with women and crime are lavishly presented by director Vladimir Mashkov. The performance starts at 7 p.m. at the Satirikon Theater at 8 Sheremetyevskaya Ulitsa. Tel. 289-7844. Nearest metro: Rizhskaya.
