No Nunsense

Think twice about taking your Valentine to the "Tsaritsa-Nuns of the Novodevichy Convent" exhibit. It tells the sad story - in icons, personal belongings, manuscripts, books, embroidery and other items - of the 14 tsars' wives who were forced to become nuns and were imprisoned in the convent. Novodevichy Convent, 1 Novodevichy Proyezd. Metro Sportivnaya. Tel. 246-8526. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Left at the Altar

There's more unluckiness in love at the American House of Cinema on Wednesday with "Runaway Bride" (1999). Julia Roberts stars as a bride with a penchant for leaving fianc?s at the altar. "Runaway Bride" plays at 9 p.m. The cinema is located in the Radisson Slavjanskaya Hotel, 2 Berezhkovskaya Naberezhnaya. Metro Kievskaya. Tel. 941-8747. Russian translation through headphones.

Love or Money

And if you take your date to "Krechinsky's Wedding," you'll certainly send the wrong message - and probably even forfeit your kiss goodnight. The musical production is based on Alexander Sukhovo-Kobylin's satire about a social climber who nearly tricks his way into a profitable marriage. "Krechinsky's Wedding" (Svadba Krechinskogo) plays at 7 p.m. at the Maly Theater Affiliate, located at 69 Bolshaya Ordynka Ulitsa. Metro Dobryninskaya. Tel. 237-3181.
