Watch this if: You can fill in the blank in “I need these (blank) back.” “Welcome to Canada!” “That ship is gonna blow!” And of course the iconic, “Dr. Penfield, I smell burnt toast.” We owe so much to Historica Canada, which has burned moments of Canadian history into our minds with their Heritage Minutes collection (recently updated to include stories like Chanie Wenjack and Kensington Market). It’s time to test your knowledge with a trivia night hosted by Historica Canada. If you’re a buff looking to prove your talents, run like you’re Laura Secord. (Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St. W., 7 p.m.) —Carly Maga TUESDAY The Cure: Anniversary 1978-2018 Live in Hyde Park Watch this if: You love concert movies that are gloriously gloomy. Back in 1978, about 65 people witnessed the very first performance of the Cure in a grotty pub in the West Sussex borough of Crawley in the U.K. Last year, there were many more present when the British icons of swirly, mopey rock marked the band’s 40th anniversary with a massive show at London’s Hyde Park. Video director and longtime collaborator Tim Pope was there to record the festivities for posterity. The Revue hosts a one-night engagement with an opening set by DJ Blush. Remember to bring extra lipstick to ensure your maximum resemblance to singer Robert Smith. (Revue Cinema, 400 Roncesvalles Ave., 9 p.m.)
