WEEKEND PICKS

Movies Kevin Costner, below co-produced and directed the epic "Dances With Wolves," a three-hour film that is well worth the running time. Costner also stars. He plays an army man assigned to a frontier outpost where he becomes friendly with a local tribe of Indians. The film uses subtitles when the Indians speak, and the Indians get a fair shake in the film--they are no better or worse than the white characters. Violence, nudity, sex. Rating: PG-13.***

If Thanksgiving has arrived, you know it's also time for mid-season replacements to begin popping up to supplant some of the turkeys the networks started in September. Tonight, the case in point is "Broken Badges," premiering at 8 on CBS (Channel 11). It's another cop show with some variations, such as the Cajun identity of lead character Beau Jack Bowman (Miguel Ferrer) and his recruitment of officers who have been on mental health leaves. Successful producer Stephen J. Cannell is behind the show.

Music

Ernest Imhoff

Two nationally recognized instrumentalists play here in the next three days.

"Cinema Paradiso" was cited as the best foreign film of 1989 and deserved the honor. The comedy takes place in Sicily where a young boy sees the world through the projection booth of the village movie house. As an adult, he returns to the village when the man who was his mentor dies. The film has no rating.****

Theater

Winnie Walsh

"Bum This," Lanford Wilson's explosive comedy about a wildly neurotic love relationship, is being given hilarious treatment at 00 the Fells Point Comer Theatre.
