Taking his meticulous documentary technique overseas, director Frederick Wiseman trains his camera on a more glamorous institution than the ones explored in such films as High School, Welfare, and Hospital: the world’s oldest repertory-theater company. Typically exhaustive, the 223-minute La Comedie-Francaise ou l’Amour Joue tracks actors and directors as well as technicians and administrators as the venerable company prepares productions of classic comedies by Molière, Racine, Marivaux, and Feydeau. At 6 p.m. at the National Gallery of Art’s East Building auditorium, 4th & Constitution Ave. NW. FREE. (202) 737-4215. (Mark Jenkins)
