Apollo 13. This is much more than just a screening of the sci-nonfi classic, it's a must-attend for any space fan. Spacefest is teaming up with JW Marriott Starr Pass for an outdoor, under-the-stars extravaganza. It features a pre-show Q&A with Astronaut Fred Haise, Apollo 13 Flight Directors and Controllers Gerry Griffin and Jerry Bostick and the man who may have saved the Apollo 13, Sy Liebergot. 7 p.m. Friday, July 6. 3800 W. Starr Pass Boulevard. $6. Please bring own seating.

Sylvester Stallone's Over the Top Birthday Bash. In honor of the big 72, Casa Video is celebrating Sylvester Stallone AKA the Italian Stallion AKA John Rambo AKA Weaver from Antz in the only way they know how: Screening one of Stallone's most ridiculous movies, Over the Top. It's an '80s movie about a competitive arm-wrestling truck driver. What more do you need to know? 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 6. 2905 E. Speedway Blvd.

Scarlet Street. From the visionary—and I do not use that term lightly—director of Metropolis and M comes a film noir from 1945. It's part crime, part drama, part mental trickery against every character involved. The Screening Room is proving that Fritz Lang, the man who made some of the best silent films of all time, is also pretty damn good at making talkies. 7 p.m. Saturday, July 7. 127 E. Congress St.

Yellow Submarine. "I wish the Beatles made more movies," said anyone who's ever dropped acid, but no one else. Well, now is your chance to see what all the hype is about. Take a bizarre and colorful journey through the waters, the watercolors and the water pipes. And as a bonus, this screening is in full 4K digital resolution. It's 50 years old and never looked better. 2 to 3:30 p.m., Sunday, July 8. Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. $10.

The Seventh Seal. Yeah, there's going to be a lot of Ingmar Bergman in the coming weeks. The Loft Cinema is celebrating the Swedish director's 100th birthday to the glee of beret-wearers and Philip Glass-listeners everywhere. Picture this: A tired, old knight meets up with Death incarnate on an empty beach and they sit down for a game of chess. It's a simple, yet powerful, story idea, and this movie starts there and only goes further. 7:30 to 9:15 p.m. Thursday, July 12. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. Regular admission prices.

Jaws. Just in time for summer, Harkins Theatres is showing Spielberg's classic for their Tuesday Night Classics series. Considering there's really nothing else to be said about this horror masterpiece, here's a piece of trivia: The famous line, "You're gonna need a bigger boat," was not scripted, Roy Scheider ad-libbed it. 7 p.m., July 10. 5455 S. Calle Santa Cruz.
