Monday

“Yellow Submarine” screening at 7 p.m. at Landmark Kendall Square Cinema, 355 Binney St., Kendall Square. Tickets are $15. This psychedelic 1968 animated film, showing in a restored version for one night only, is loaded with Beatles songs and optimism that love is all a nation really needs to handle its bullies. The Beatles aren’t necessarily wrong – but applying the lesson looks harder 50 years later. Information is here.


Tuesday

Boston Short Film Festival from 4 to 7 p.m. (and continuing through Thursday) at the Somerville Theatre, 55 Davis Square. Free. Some three dozen films, ranging from a minute to nearly 40 minutes, will screen over three days, from as close as Somerville’s Artisan’s Asylum to as far away as Germany, Iran and Brazil in narrative, documentary, animated, underground and experimental categories and a variety of styles. Information is here.

The 16th annual Taste of Cambridge from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Lechmere Canal Park, East Cambridge. (Raindate is Thursday.) Adult tickets start at $60 ($64.29 with the online fee).

In addition to food and drink (including a mocktail contest), there will be games, grills, dancing with DJ Leah V and the Dirty Water Brass Band and a 40-minute canal cruise with some ticket tiers. Information is here.


Wednesday

Shakespeare’s “Henry IV” from 7 to 9:30 p.m. (and through July 22, with the final six performances relocating) at Danehy Park, 99 Sherman St., in Neighborhood 9 just east of Fresh Pond. Free. Praxis Stage and director Jessica Ernst presents a tragedy that asks: How do you know if a ruler’s power is legitimate? Who makes the call, and what happens if the answer is no? When you find yourself in a destabilized world, what part do you play? Any relevance you detect is no accident – Praxis was founded in out of outrage over the election of Donald Trump as president “with the goals of linking theater with activism and producing plays that enter contemporary political crisis points and ongoing cultural conversations.” Information is here.

The Comedy Studio Presents from 8 to 10 p.m. at Remnant Brewing, 2 Bow St., Union Square, Somerville. Tickets are $5 (or $6.15 with the online service fee) with 100 percent of ticket sales going to the Community Action Agency of Somerville. While The Comedy Studio’s own space is still under construction at the new Bow Market, host Rick Jenkins brings a lineup of comedians to the outside beer garden of its soon-to-be neighbor, which will serve its own lineup of freshly hopped beer. (The show is 21-plus.) Comedians include Kathleen DeMarle; Andrew Mayer; Terence Pennington; Lamont Price; Carolyn Riley; Sean Rosa; and Jeff Smith (aka J. Smitty). Information is here.

Friday

Somerville International Film Festival from 4 to 7 p.m. (and with a second part Saturday) at the Somerville Theatre, 55 Davis Square. Free. Don’t get confused – this is the second free, small film festival of the week screening at the same theater. How to tell this one apart: It’s part of the year’s ArtBeat festival and doesn’t limit offerings to short films, though there is a tiny bit of overlap in the roughly two dozen films of varying lengths and styles, and the films come from as far away as Norway, Russia and China. Information is here.

Camp Crystal Lake slasher-themed Friday the 13th Party with performances from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Oberon, 2 Arrow St., Harvard Square. Tickets are $15 to $20. (It’s 18-plus to enter, 21-plus to drink; no dress code, though creepy costumes or scout attire are encouraged.) A Friday the 13th during summer camp season is a good reason for a dance party DJ’ed by Coleslaw & Begbick with occasional bursts of gory burlesque violence. Information is here.

Somerville’s signature arts festival returns with dance troupes and more than a dozen bands, 75 craft vendors, food and all-age activities throughout Davis Square – this time along the year’s theme of “flip,” a celebration of all things upside down, backwards and sideways. Information and a schedule is here.

Poetry reading and discussion of “Siege” by Roxane Orgill from 1 to 2 p.m. at Longfellow House, 105 Brattle St., West Cambridge. Free.
