Cinema Politica invites you to a 50th anniversary screening of 1966’s The Battle of Algiers by Italian director Gillo Pontecorvo, a seminal cinema verité-style film that takes a look at guerrilla anti-colonial struggles in 1950’s Algeria against the French government. 1455 de Maisonneuve W., H-110, 7 p.m., $5–$10 PWYC

If you’re looking for some lighter film fare, head to Bar le Ritz for a special double header of George A. Romero’s zombie classics Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Dawn of the Dead (1978), a co-presentation with the Montreal Zombie Walk. BYO snacks or order yourself a pizza and take advantage of all-night drink specials from the bar. 179 Jean-Talon W., 7 p.m., PWYC $1–$5
