The Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour Revisited

Bring your brainy kids to see Raina Telgemeier, the best-selling graphic novelist and young adult writer behind Smile (A Dental Drama) and Drama. She’s in town to give a presentation about her work, followed by a discussion period. Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (211 Bernard W.), 3–5 p.m., free

A new exhibition of Montreal sexy hyperrealist painter Jean Chaîney, CLIMAX, officially opens today. Vernissage Galerie Dentaire (1239 Amherst), 5–8 p.m., free

The Beatles’ psychedelic TV movie Magical Mystery Tour was famously the Fab Four’s only flop. Despite or because of this, a doc about the film is a no-brainer for Beatles freaks. The Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour Revisited screens at arts film fest FIFA. J.A. De Sève Cinema (1455 de Maisonneuve W.), 6:30 p.m., $12.44

Local documentarian Nadine Gomez’s The Horse Palace takes a look at the eponymous Griffintown horse stables in a portrait that’s both poignant and critical. Anglos take note: unlike the version in theatrical release at Excentris, this screening of the bilingual doc will have English subtitles. Read our interview with Gomez in our latest print issue. PHI Centre (407 St-Pierre), 7 p.m., $11.25

Bad Uncle and Cirquantique present A Surgeon’s Lament, a rock opera of monstrous proportions. Bain Mathieu (2915 Ontario E.), 8:30 p.m., $15

Local singer-songwriter Leif Vollebekk launches his long-awaited LP of dusty folk ditties, North Americana, with stellar support in the form of Jennifer Castle. Cabaret du Mile End (5240 Parc), 9 p.m., $12
