MOVIES: Green-screen series continues

  Las Vegas may have some imaginative manufactured landscapes, but there’s a different vision at work in "Manufactured Landscapes," the latest in the CineVegas Green Film Series, which continues at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Springs Preserve, 333 S. Valley View Blvd.
  That’s because the documentary — from director Jennifer Baichwal — focuses on the world and work of artist Edward Burtynsky, whose large-scale photographs of "manufactured landscapes" (from quarries and mines to factories, recycling yards and dams) create art from what most people would consider debris.
  Following the screening, panelists will discuss themes and issues raised in the documentary; participants include Las Vegas social artist David Sanchez-Burr and Margo Wheeler, planning and development director for the city of Las Vegas.
  Tickets ($10 general admission) are available by calling 822-7705 or in person at the Springs Preserve box office; $25 "Food and a Flick" packages also are available and include 5, 5:30, 6 or 6:30 p.m. seatings for a pre-movie dinner at the Springs Preserve Cafe.

  A second CineVegas screening series — the offbeat "Area 52" — kicks off at 9 p.m. Sunday at the Onyx Theatre, 953 E. Sahara Ave., Suite 16 (inside The Rack in Commercial Center). The opening-night attraction: "Interkosmos," which played the 2006 festival, focusing on a secret (and make-believe) Soviet-East German space project. Shorts by local filmmaker Tom Barndt will precede "Interkosmos" — which in turn will be preceded by an 8:30 p.m. reception.
  Tickets are $7 and may be purchased at the Onyx Theatre. For more information, click on
