Tom Cruise kicks alien butt while reliving the same day over and over. Sure, it’s a bit Groundhog Day-ish, but Edge of Tomorrow is still a fun film.

SEE

Edge of Tomorrow Tom Cruise is charismatic and fun to watch as a soldier who keeps living the same day over and over again in this clever alien-invasion thriller. Now playing.

HEAR

Reggae in the Desert The unifying power of reggae and the Caribbean lifestyle (and beer!) will flow through our dusty metropolis, with sounds by Collie Buddz, Morgan Heritage, Fortunate Youth and more. Bring a blanket, and be ready to haggle for some sweet handicrafts. June 14, noon-11 p.m., $25 in advance; $30 at the door, Clark County Government Center Amphitheater.

Steve Winwood He turned 66 last month, but the Spencer Davis Group/Traffic/Blind Faith singer still sounds like same boy he used to be, the voice behind “Dear Mr. Fantasy,” “Can’t Find My Way Home” and, yes, “Valerie.” June 13 & 14, 8 p.m., $50-$60, Brooklyn Bowl.

GO

The Graduate Charles Webb’s novel about the awkwardness between college and adulthood led to a legendary 1967 Dustin Hoffman movie. Time to get seduced by the story all over again in this Onyx Theatre adaptation. June 13 & 14, 21 & 22, 8 p.m. $15-$20.

Spamalot This hybrid of Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Broadway musical is one of the most successful productions of the last few decades, and it opens Super Summer Theatre’s 2014 season.

EAT

Mind of a Chef Naked City Pizza’s Chris Palmeri serves a special seven-course menu inspired by words like “simple," "smoke," "rotten” and “memory.” That last one is the link to grandma’s veal cutlet, and we’re guessing grandma can cook. June 18, 7 p.m., $75, Naked City Pizza on Paradise.
