Granted, the story of OGs NWA is a bit of a formulaic biopic, but it’s a pretty well-executed one that’s worth checking out on the big screen. Various locations and times — see the options here.

Contemporary dance festival Quartiers Danses is underway and is offering a free dance performance double-header outside Berri-UQAM metro. Don’t miss your chance to see Elizabeth Suich’s Une ContreVérité / Urbanisée followed by Catherine Lafleur’s Fuck It. St-Denis & de Maisonneuve, 5 p.m., free
