LOS ANGELES -- One version features the reptiles and the orbs duking it out for control of Pluto. Another has a lucky few humans morphing into bald, dome-headed aliens as they drift off into cosmic bliss.Then there's the psychological drama approach: A youngish set designer, a film biz type, responds to a newspaper ad and joins a cult, following its rituals and adopting its values until suddenly he decides to cut out on his own -- just a few weeks before all 39 of his buddies pull out purple shrouds and commit mass suicide.

The Bible tells how Jesus fed thousands of people with just a few fish and loaves of bread. The story is meant to show Jesus' miracle-making power, and also to teach a fundamental lesson in compassion. The Rev. Henry B. Hunt and members of Mount Hebron Memorial Church of God in Christ have taken that moral to heart. Yesterday, as they have done for nine years, the church members opened the doors of Heaven's Gate Eatery, a church subsidiary, offering a free sit-down Christmas dinner for anyone who wanted to come.

Soulful suppers It's a whole new definition of soul food. Heaven's Gate Eatery at 1825 N. Smallwood St. in West Baltimore is run mostly by members of the Hebron Memorial Church of God and Christ, with the motto "Food for the Body & Soul." The cafeteria is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day but Sunday. You can get dinners such as fried chicken, ribs, pigs feet and meatloaf with gravy, and side orders such as hush puppies, black-eyed peas and candied sweets. But don't think everything is soulful.

A coffee bar is open during the evening."We want to provide an alternative to the regular Sunday morning service," said spokesman Ed Salmons. "Some people don't like a traditional service."

HEAVEN'S GATE Animal Rescue will hold a car show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday on the Costco parking lot off Ordnance Road. The event will include food and music along with the opportunity to view vehicles owned by members of the Custom Car Club of Maryland. Rain date is Sunday. Heaven's Gate, a Glen Burnie-based nonprofit organization that rescues abandoned or unwanted cats and dogs, was founded 20 years ago by Joanne Redelius. Because many of the animals have health problems, the organization averages $2,000 a month in veterinary bills.

One of Hollywood's most interminable and undecipherable ego trips airs on TNT tonight.Hot off his major success with "The Deer Hunter," director Michael Cimino was given carte blanche to bring to the screen his dream project, a dramatization of the 1890s Johnson County War between homesteaders and land barons in Wyoming. The result, "Heaven's Gate" (11 p.m.-3: 30 a.m.), was a $35 million mess that nearly destroyed a movie studio, United Artists, which ended up being bought and merged with MGM (for a fascinating account of the whole debacle, read Steven Bach's 1985 "Final Cut")
