On your radar: Elvis Presley's 'Blue Hawaii,' a spa party for girls night or a night hike

Blue Hawaii: Plot? A minor point when you have Young Elvis performing Can't Help Falling in Love (instead of doughy Vegas Elvis) in this 1961 Elvis Presley movie. It's part of the Capitol Classics Film Series at the Capitol Theater, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater, at 7:30 p.m. $6. (727) 791-7400.

Girls Night Out: Summer Spa Party. Get mini spa treatments, appetizers, wine and swag bags thanks to Working Women of Tampa Bay and Benefits My Hope Chest. It starts at 6 p.m. at Sandpearl Resorts, 500 Mandalay Ave., Clearwater. $15 members; $20 nonmembers. (727) 441-2425.

Night Hike: See which creepy-crawlies come out after dark or just gaze at the stars at 8 p.m. at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve, 1101 Country Club Way S, St. Petersburg. $3, $1.50 children, reservations required. (727) 893-7326.

Kids and family

Back to School Party: Bring lunch boxes, backpacks or notebooks to decorate, or create your own school supplies. All art supplies provided, starting at 3 p.m. at Morean Arts Center, 719 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. $5. (727) 822-7872.

Pop-Up Theatre: Grab one of the available bean bag chairs to view a free movie with activities including face painting and balloon artists.

To watch

Season finale: MasterChef, 8 p.m., Fox: Who gets the money and the cookbook? As Gordon Ramsay would say, who the %&@! cares?

Season premiere: Downsized, 9 p.m., WEtv: The Bruce family is almost off food stamps and Todd wants to buy a house, but probably can't. Just like we want to watch TV shows that don't remind us how depressing real life is, but probably can't.

Season finale: HawthoRNe, 10 p.m., TNT: Tom has to operate on a close friend. We thought doctors weren't allowed to do that.
