Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

Today marks the beginning of Millenniumm Park's summer film series, and what better way to kick it off than with Bill Murray and the late Harold Ramis strutting along to a little Ray Parker Jr. in Ghostbusters? The Twinkie of psychokinetic energy should end up being about 40 feet long on the massive LED screen.

"Los Angeles band La Santa Cecilia, which consists of Latin American immigrants and children of immigrants, made a splash last year with the infectiously breezy, bossa-kissed single 'Ice el Hielo,' which undercut its sunny melody with stark lyrics about illegals living in tension and fear," writes Peter Margasak in Soundboard. Catch their set tonight at Mayne Stage.

Our senior theater critic Tony Adler recommends checking out The Dance of Death, Writers Theatre's latest production. "Its savagery is Pinterian, its bleak tenderness Beckettian, its ability to go completely yet somehow precisely over the top savors to me of Ionesco," writes Adler.
