Cage and Travolta in Face/Off

Lunch Soul brings Andy Williams (the Goods Soundsystem) to Jardins Gamelin to spin some soul, funk, hip hop and techno. Ste-Catherine & Berri, 12–2 p.m., free

NDG Arts Week launches with a party at the Centre Culturel featuring live music by Montango, Opéra dans le parc and Paul Cargnello, with host Paul Shore (The Street Speaks) and DJ Dr. MaD. Bonus: wine and appetizers, and circus performers in adjacent Benny Park. 6400 Monkland, 48 p.m., free

Bar le Ritz screens John Woo’s 1997 action/camp classic Face/Off in glorious 35mm. Note that the screening is a little more expensive than usual (it’s usually free) due to screening rights, print rental and projection services – it will be worth it. As usual there will be free popcorn, and you can order food by delivery. 179 Jean-Talon W., 8 p.m., $10

On the other end of town, Kafein Café-Bar hosts their own Monday night film screening, selecting Tarantino’s 1992 debut feature, the gritty and hilarious Reservoir Dogs. 1429A Bishop, 8 p.m., free

Montreal synth-pop duo Sorry Girls play Casa del Popolo tonight with supporting sets from fellow locals Special Treats and Ada Lea plus Toronto’s MPSO. 4873 St-Laurent, 8 p.m., PWYC
