Eastern Cemetery Walking Tour
4 p.m. daily. Eastern Cemetery, intersection of Congress Street and Washington Avenue, Portland, $10, $5 seniors and students, free for under 12, reservations required.
If you think a guided walk around an old cemetery isn’t fascinating, you’re dead wrong. Let the tour guides from Spirits Alive lead you through Portland’s Eastern Cemetery, established in 1668 and home to about 4,000 souls. You’ll learn about the site’s history and some of the prominent historical figures buried there, as well as some of the early gravestone art.

Sigur Rós: Ínni
8 p.m. Friday. Congress Square Park, Portland, free.
Just because concerts are happening again doesn’t mean you can’t gather in Congress Square Park to see a concert film, especially since it’s a band that has only played in Maine once, back in 2006. Sigur Rós is an Icelandic post-rock band and “Inní” was released in 2011. Watching it doesn’t make like you feel like you’re an audience member but rather that you’re floating on a cloud just above. Filmmaker Vincent Morisset refilmed the digital footage on 16mm and then refilmed it again using prisms and found objects for a stunning visual presentation.
