Run, drink beer and raise money to help end diabetes, almost all at the same time.

Renegade Brewing Co., 295 W. Ninth Ave., is having a Fun(draising) Beer Run at 6:30 p.m. It’s free, but donations are encouraged and Renegade will be donating $1 from every pint purchased. The run will be a “5K-ish,” and you don’t even have to run if you don’t feel like it.

The Denver Museum of Nature and Science’s Indigenous Film series presents “Two Spirits” tonight at the Phipps IMAX Theater, 2001 Colorado Blvd.

The film from director Nydia Nibley tells the stories of Fred Martinez, a young Navajo who identified as nádleehí — a male-bodied person with a feminine nature — and who was murdered in 2001 at age 16. It includes a reenactment of Martinez’s murder, so leave the kids home for this one.

It’s free and starts at 6 p.m.

Raconteur Denver, a local storytelling series, invites you to remember the moment when you first realized you were an adult.

As usual, the evening will start with three scheduled speakers before opening things up to give audience members three minutes of storytime each. This edition’s speakers are John Cotter, Michael J. Henry and Buzzy Jackson, and it’s happening from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Preservery, 3040 Blake St., #101.

See Charlie Chaplin’s classic and controversial film, “The Great Dictator,” on the big screen today at the Esquire Theatre, 590 Downing St.

In his first “pure talkie,” Chaplin did double duty, playing a kindly Jewish barber who is mistaken for Hitler and creating a caricature of the dictator.

It’s playing twice, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and tickets are $8.50.
