Avatar, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Star Trek Movie Night. Casa Video Film Bar is going all-out in celebration of Zoë Saldaña's 40th birthday. Did you know she starred in all three films? Me neither, but once you think about it, yep, that's her alright. Now's your chance to get down to Casa Video and start genuflecting the new queen of sci-fi. Avatar plays first, then Guardians, then Star Trek. 7 p.m., Friday, June 15. 2905 E. Speedway Blvd.

Dive-In Movie: Moana. The Ott Family YMCA is giving you the option to fully embrace the aquatic and summery vibes of Moana by allowing you to view it poolside. The giant, bedazzled crabs and The Rock playing a demigod will seem so much more realistic this way! 6 p.m. Friday, June 15. 401 S. Prudence Road. $3 for members, $5 for non-members.

Attraction. The Screening Room is continuing the theme of a sci-fi summer with an alien invasion film from the very far, yet very close land of Russia. But this flick focuses not on the military aspects of alien invasions, but the civilian side. What would happen in regular neighborhoods if aliens showed up? Only one way to find out. 9 to 11 p.m., Friday, June 15. 127 E Congress St.

The Godfather and Royal Tenenbaums Father's Day Screenings. Take your dad out for a movie screening of a classic Dad-core film. Or, if The Godfather isn't quite his thing and your dad is a bit artsier than the average pops, you can see The Royal Tenenbaums. If you aren't sure which to pick, ask yourself this: Does your dad enjoy Crime and Punishment, or Crimes and Misdemeanors more? Either way, The Loft has your back. 2 p.m. for Godfather, 7:30 p.m. for Tenenbaums, Sunday, June 17. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

Island Claws. For Mondo Mondays at The Loft, June is Marine Monster Beach Party themed! This means you get to see giant, frazzled crabs running amok in a Florida beach city. It's a classic cheesy monster movie: Nuclear plant spills onto docile animals, animals get big and angry, screams ensue, guy gets girl (probably). What's not to like? 8 p.m., Monday, June 18. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. $3.

5 Minute Film Fest. For their monthly Free Third Thursday event, the Museum of Contemporary Art is showing a series of local films that are, you guessed it, five minutes. The films range from documentary to experimental to animation. Including films from local artists: Jazzy Boho, Michael Fenlason, Eric Flores, Scott Graham Bell and many more. 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, June 21. 265 S. Church Ave.
