Youth theatre company Geordie presents a special film screening in the lead-up to their next production, Reaching for Starlight. Black Ballerina is a film that “uses the ethereal world of ballet to engage audiences in a subject that reaches far outside the arts and compels viewers to think about larger issues of diversity, equality and inclusion.” Selwyn House’s Coristine Hall (95 Côte-St-Antoine), 7 p.m., PWYC

The only drag-king only show in Montreal, ManSpread, is on tonight at the Wiggle Room. Headlining are Charli Deville, Honey Lustre, Slick Hardwood, Queeny Ives and a number of other habitués. 3874 St-Laurent, 8:30 p.m., $20/$25
