During the Feb. 23 grand opening of Piano! Las Vegas, Las Vegas native Ryan Ahern didn’t tickle the ivories so much as command them. He touts himself as a “World Champion Pianist” and he’s not just talking smack. Even though his friendly demeanor and heavy hands seem more at home in a butcher shop than dancing across a piano keyboard, the minute he hits the bench he’s all focus, fingers blurring, nailing every note.

Ahern is backed by a six-piece band and he plays arrangements of everything from Top 40 pop (such as Maroon 5’s “This Love”) to Broadway show tunes to movie themes to ’50s rock ’n’ roll. (2:30 p.m. Sat-Thu, from $30, V Theater at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, 260-7200.)

Unknown (PG-13)

This fish-out-of-water thriller is not an especially memorable film, but Liam Neeson’s performance as Dr. Martin Harris makes it entertaining. After a car accident, Martin awakens with enough memory intact to retrace his steps back to his hotel. But Martin’s wife (January Jones) doesn’t recognize him and an imposter (Aidan Quinn) has taken his place. The solution to Unknown’s mystery is excessively contrived and yet underdeveloped.
