Director Ruben Ostlund’s bitingly sharp new film, The Square, skewers the absurdities of post-modern art and museum culture. Where else to see it but at the Portland Museum of Art (7 Congress Square), where it screens today (at 6 p.m.) through Nov. 19. Tix: $8 ($6 students; NR). 775-6148. portlandmuseum.org. And at the Apohadion Theater (107 Hanover St., Portland), minimalist composer and bassist C.J. Boyd tops a triple-bill that includes the Brooklyn-based new-music chamber group ensemble, et al. and Belfast indie-rock band Osmia at 8 p.m. Suggested donation: $5-$10 (all ages). 831-9569. theapohadiontheater.com.
