Art: If you’ve got a hankering for hitting the links but can’t get to it right now, perhaps an ongoing exhibit at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta will help slake your fairway thirst. Gary Wiren’s nonpareil collection of golf memorabilia is on display along with paintings, photographs and sculptures from the Academy of Golf Art. Included are paintings by David Coolidge, Leslie B. DeMille, Linda Hartough and George Lawrence, photographs by Dick Durrance II, Dom Furore and Harry Labrecht, and scuplture by Brad Pearson. The exhibit runs through April 6 at the center, which is in the Gallery Square North Plaza in Tequesta. Wiren will give a lecture about his collection at 6 p.m. Wednesday, followed by a book signing at 7:15 p.m. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets: $10 for non-members. Call 746-3101 or visit www.lighthousearts.org.
Film: As sort of a follow-up to last year’s Inception comes another science-fiction look at the way the world works, the clever and smart The Adjustment Bureau, based on a short story by Philip K. Dick (Blade Runner, Minority Report). Matt Damon is a U.S. congressman on the rise, with his eyes on a Senate seat and perhaps beyond, if the title bureau operatives have anything to say about it. But Damon meets an alluring modern dancer (Emily Blunt) and romance gets in the way of his political ambitions, so the bureau – a team of fedora-wearing, button-down Mad Men types – gets involved in keeping them apart. The movie is an action-packed meditation on free will versus destiny, so you are advised not to leave your brains at the movie theater door. At area theaters beginning Friday. – H. Erstein
Theater: You’re probably thinking: Where can I go for a good supernatural love story, right? The answer is Florida Stage at the Kravis, which opens Friday night with the regional premiere of Michael Hollinger’s Ghost-Writer. Hollinger has been produced three times before by the company, with such eclectic works as Incorruptible, Red Herring and Opus. Ghost-Writer has a similar reverence for words and wordplay, and is about the act of writing and literary inspiration. Hollinger takes us back to 1919 New York City, where fictional novelist Franklin Woolsey spends his days dictating his new book to his efficient, smitten secretary. But when he dies, the dictation continues, as she insists she is still receiving his words from beyond the grave. Producing director Lou Tyrell stages the three-character play, which continues through April 3. Call (561) 832-7469 for tickets. – H. Erstein
Music: The Festival of the Arts Boca gets under way for the fifth year tonight at Mizner Park in Boca Raton with a Rotary Club-sponsored night of young performers, then moves on Saturday to the Canadian Brass, and then to Montenegrin classical guitarist Milos Karadaglic on Sunday. The Canadian Brass, founded in 1970, may be the best-known such brass ensemble in the world, with more than 90 recordings to its credit and countless appearances for audiences far from their Toronto base. The group appears at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Count de Hoernle Amphitheater. On Sunday night, it’s Karadaglic, a 27-year-old who is making his first American appearance with his concert at 7:30 p.m. Karadaglic also is in the process of recording his first album. For more information, call 368-8445 or visit www.festivaloftheartsboca.org.
The Tropical Baroque XII Festival is currently under way down south under the aegis of the Miami Bach Society, but come Sunday, one of the groups appearing in the festival, Fuoco e Cenere, brings a program of 18th-century Italian music to the St. Paul’s series in Delray Beach. Fire and Ashes (or Ash), which is the translation of the Paris-based group’s Italian name, was founded by Jay Bernfeld, a New York-born viol player. Sunday afternoon’s program offers music by Alessandro Scarlatti, Francesco Durante, Francesco Mancini and Antonio Vivaldi. Soloists are soprano Isabelle Poulenard and mezzo Guillemette Laurens, accompanied by a small chamber group of recorder, viola da gamba, theorbo and harpsichord. The concert at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Delray starts at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15-$18. Call 278-6003 or visit www.stpaulsdelray.org.
Opera: The Palm Beach Opera closes its fascinating Opera in One Hour series tonight with another first: A zarzuela.

Soprano Alison Bates stars as the title character, with Kenneth Stavert as Vidal Hernando, Greta Ball as Duchess Carolina, and Evanivaldo Correa as Javier. The abridged opera begins at 9 p.m. at the Harriet Himmel Theater, CityPlace. Admission is free. For more information, call 833-7888 or visit www.pbopera.org.
