“Black Swan” at The Grand Cinema

For a dark depiction of the masochistic, psychologically brutal side of ballet, you can’t go past “Black Swan,” where Natalie Portman plays a ballerina who loses herself, literally, in the iconic “Swan Lake” lead role. Various times. $8.50/$7.50. The Grand Cinema, 606 S. Fawcett St., Tacoma. 253-593-4474, www.grandcinema.com

Still a “Nutcracker” or two at PNB

Christmas might be almost here but the “Nutcracker” keeps going, at least for Pacific Northwest Ballet. The extravagant Stowell and Sendak production, with its “Where the Wild Things Are”-style sets and imagination, runs through this weekend. 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. today, 1 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Dec. 26 and 27. $29-$123. McCaw Hall, Seattle Center, Seattle. 206-441-2424, www.pnb.org
