Sheik show

Rudolph Valentino was 1926’s sexiest man alive — until suddenly he wasn’t. The icon died the night before the premiere of his greatest triumph, “Son of the Sheik,” which screens tonight in Prospect Park with a live soundtrack provided by Alloy Orchestra.

7:30 pm at the Prospect Park Bandshell (enter at Ninth Street and Prospect Park West in Park Slope, www.bricartsmedia.org). Free.

Saturday

July 18

Serial Twiller

Sick of the sun? Then hide inside with beer and popcorn at “Twillerama 2,” the second annual anthology of strange animated shorts from local artists — including Oscar-nominee Bill Plympton — hosted by cartoon character Jeff Twiller (pictured, on right). 7 pm at Videology [308 Bedford Ave. at S. First Street in Williamsburg, (718) 782-3468, www.videology.info]. $5.

Sunny funny

Okay, you have had your picnic by the water and lounged in the sun — now what? Stare at the Manhattan skyline? Boring! Instead, listen to NPR host Ophira Eisenberg and some late night comedy writers yuk it up at this afternoon Laughter in the Parks show.

2 pm at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Granite Prospect (Old Fulton Street at Furman Street in Dumbo, www.brooklynbridgepark.org). Free.

Tuesday

July 21

The band, not the cops

The New York rockers of Interpol unleash their antics under the bright lights of the Prospect Park bandshell. Ticket sales benefit the Celebrate Brooklyn free shows going on all summer.

Wednesday

July 22

Khan artist

Downtown Brooklyn is fast becoming a new hotspot for outdoor music, with R&B concerts in MetroTech on Thursday afternoons and Brooklyn Nights concerts on Wednesday evenings. Check out the latter show tonight, with Brooklyn hip-hop performer Soul Khan, along with Deuce Ellis and Amani Fela.
