Diana: A Celebration
Thru Dec. 31 at the National Constitution Center Museum
For the past two months, Philadelphians have been privy to an up-close-and-personal look at the legacy of Lady Di, thanks to this thoughtfully curated exhibit. Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, chose many of the items on display, and some of the money raised from admission fees will benefit causes supported by her and her family. And, yes, the famed wedding dress is here as well. $15-$23. 525 Arch St., Independence Mall, Philadelphia; (866) 917-1787, constitutioncenter.org.

The Ultimate Book of Sports Movies
Ray Didinger and Glen Macnow
(Running Press, 352 pages)
When veteran football analyst Ray Didinger and WIP radio host Glen Macnow set out to rank the top 100 sports movies of all time, they were savvy enough to know their limitations as film critics. For input, they enlisted the help of many of the top figures in pro sports, including Ryan Howard, Payton and Eli Manning, Donovan McNabb, and the always-opinionated Charles Barkley. The book is filled with fun trivia and images from classic scenes. Don’t fret, local sports fans: Rocky and Invincible are in there.
