Shark by Sean Havas

If you’re experiencing heavy withdrawal, pack some earplugs and head downtown to see Jucifer, les Momies de Palerme, Squalor and Lion Farm. Piranha (680 Ste-Catherine W.), 7 p.m., $5

Relax and catch La ragazza del lago (2007), screening as part of Montreal’s Italian Week. Directed by Andrea Molaioli, it’s the tale of a complex investigation into the death of a young girl found near a lake in her small village in the Italian Alps. Casa Italia, (505 Jean-Talon E), 7:30 p.m., free

Take in the first day of an exhibit by autodidact abstract painter and Lanaudière resident Sébastien Louis Côté, and pick up one of these sweet fire-detecting chicks in the boutique on your way out. L’espace contemporain galerie d’art, 5715 Papineau

Listen to a talk about literature at the inaugural day of the Literary Pride conference, a five-day panel of scholarly discussions about books and sexuality to be held at various locations downtown, and hosted by Radio-Canada personality Denis-Martin Chabot.

Before he was a dirty old man cranking out movies on autopilot, Woody Allen used to make some pretty good ones. Generally regarded as his best, 1977’s Annie Hall screens tonight through Thursday at the Cinéma du Parc. 3575 Parc, 9:15 p.m.

Last chance to confront your Jaws-mares at Sean Havas’s underwater photography show Shark, which closes tonight. Galerie Espace (4844 St-Laurent)
