Show up at the Bijou two days early (note: they tend to frown on that), on Thursday, and you’ll be treated to a free screening of Beyond the Epic Run, a feature-length doc about a Swiss man who ran 25,000 miles in five years, at 7:30 p.m.

If just reading that description makes you sweaty, you might be more comfortable watching Happy Birthday, Harris Malden, an indie comedy concerning a man and his fake moustache, screening 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the main gymnasium at North East School for the Arts (1400 Jackson Keller).
