The big Grand Prix race is going down this morning on Ile Notre-Dame’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. If you’re a Formula 1 fan, you will already know this, and probably have tickets for the event (or are planning/attending a viewing party or whatever.). Otherwise, if you’re anywhere in the southern part of the island (even downtown) and are wondering what that buzzing is, it’s not killer bees. It would be a good idea to avoid driving today, even if (especially if) you’re going to the race, which is easily accessible by metro. 1 Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, 2:10 p.m., Grandstand 47 $175 (the other locations are sold out)
The Mural party on St-Laurent continues with Childish Grandprixno, promising BBQ, drinks and music by Philémon, Tomahawk and the Barroco Group. Outside 3527 St-Laurent, 3 p.m.-3 a.m., free entry
Miss Representation, the award-winning doc exploring the systemic sexism in North American pop culture and media, screens at the Redpath Museum as part of a free summer documentary screening series. 859 Sherbrooke, 2:30 p.m., free
The Cinémathèque presents a David Lynch double bill. First, see the very un-Lychian A Straight Story, starring Richard Farnsworth as an old man who drives a riding mower cross-country, then with the VERY Lynchian nightmare Lost Highway. Cinémathèque québécoise (335 de Maisonneuve W.) 4:45 & 7 p.m., $10 (each)
Québécoise rapper Donzelle and her badass crew of deadpan dancers play a free show as part of the Francos music fest.
