PICK OF THE DAY

Unforgettable evening

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and some of Boston’s best musical talent will sing at the top of their lungs in the fight against the disease. “Unforgettable,” Upstage Lung Cancer’s annual cabaret concert, celebrates music of Nat King Cole and Rosemary Clooney, two legendary singers who had lung cancer. Joyce Kulhawik emcees the evening with performers Leigh Barrett, Brian De Lorenzo, Hildy Grossman (above, with Timothy Evans), Paula Markowicz, and Scott Wahle. The event also features a reception and silent auction. Nov. 12, 7:30 p.m. $40, $100. Lyric Stage, 140 Clarendon St., Boston. 617-585-5678, www.upstagelungcancer.org

MONDAY

Sea monster We all know an octopus has eight tentacles, but the giant cephalopod in “It Came From Beneath the Sea” is missing a couple. Budgetary restraints gave the mutant sea creature only six working arms, but it still does a pretty good job of tearing up San Francisco in Robert Gordon’s 1955 flick. The Coolidge’s Science on Screen series presents the movie and a talk by Professor Michael LaBarbera on “The Biology of B-Movie Monsters.” Nov. 12, 7 p.m. $10, $8 students. Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St., Brookline. 617-734-2500, www.coolidge.org
