The first weekend of fall may still feel like summer, but the dog days are (probably) gone and there’s plenty going on this week. Our picks from a crowded calendar:

1. The University of Cincinnati Horror Series continues at the Esquire Theater with a screening of George Romero’s 1968 cult hit Night of the Living Dead at 9:30 p.m. The event includes a pre-show introduction (and post-screening Q&A) by Gary Weissman, UC professor of Horror Film. Which, apparently, is an actual job. esquiretheater.com

2. The streets of Cincinnati are alive…with The Sound of Music!, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical about the intrepid Von Trapp family opens at the Aronoff Center on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. cincinnatiarts.org

3. Visionaries + Voices presents S-Heroes, an exhibition inspired by the Cincinnati Comic Expo and featuring the work of local artists and the V+V community. All heroes and shereos welcome. 5–8 p.m. visionariesandvoices.com

4. Manifest Gallery’s kicks off its thirteenth season on Friday with PHOTOREAL, an exhibit of photography-inspired drawing, painting, and sculpture. The exhibition is part of October’s FotoFocus Biennal 2106. It’s also a Walk on Woodburn evening when shops on the block, like HiBred and Leftcoast Modern, stay open late. 6–10 p.m, manifestgallery.org

5. Pulitzer Prize-winning author and everyone’s favorite presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin is the featured speaker at the Mercantile Library’s annual Niehoff Lecture, held at the Presidential Ballroom (natch) of the Westin Hotel. October 1, 7 .pm. mercantilelibrary.com
