Tuesday, July 24

Take a walk in the Village, on Ste-Catherine east of Berri, in all its pedestrian-friendly summertime splendour.

Check out the Canadian debut (en français) of the cutest little marsupial, from the director who brought you Astérix et Obélix. Cinéma Excentris (3536 St-Laurent), 7 p.m., $11

Save some bucks at Cheapie Tuesday (and movie theatre A/C) and catch the new Batman movie for what, the sixth time since its premiere last Friday? Just admit it.

For something less intense and more old-fashioned (and free!), see this year’s Oscar-sweeper The Artist outdoors in the Quartier des Spectacles. Vidéotron stage (on Jeanne-Mance just south of de Maisonneuve), 9 p.m.

ROC rocks! See Calgary producer/singer-songwriter Chad VanGaalen and Halifax indie dudes Cousins. Il Motore (179 Jean-Talon W.), 9 p.m., $17
