If you missed Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum, starting Matthew McConaughey — a film our Screen editor Alex Rose called “a sunscreen-soaked picaresque journey through the nightmare world from which many a Florida Man has sprung” (read the full review here) — it’s screening tonight at Cinéma Moderne. 5150 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., $11.50/$13

For a more refined cinematic experience, the 2017 documentary Ensemble — about the Montreal Symphony Orchestra — is screening at Parc Lafontaine’s lovely open-air space Théâtre de Verdure. Rachel & Papineau, 9 p.m., free
