Things to do in Tampa Bay April 14

Sunscreen Film Festival: A hit man, a Watchman and a smooth man will hit the red carpet this weekend as part of the five-day festival in St. Petersburg. It kicks off at 5:30 tonight with Star Wars rogue Lando Calrissian — actually Billy Dee Williams — in town, complete with an escort by members of the 501st Florida Garrison of Jedi enthusiasts in full regalia. Other stars in town later for the festival include John Travolta and hometown boy Patrick Wilson. There will be parties, lectures and movies. Tickets are $8-$175. Most events at Muvico BayWalk 20 in St. Petersburg. For schedule and tickets, sunscreenfilmfestival.com.

Pilobolus Dance Company: These dancer-athletes were the ones at the 2007 Oscars who made those funny and surreal silhouettes about the nominated movies, turning their bodies into shadow puppets of penguins, a Volks­wagen bus, a stiletto heel shoe and a gun. See them at 8 p.m. at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. Tickets are $43-$48.

KIDS AND FAMILY

The Wacky Inventor's Workshop: This live show at 2:30 p.m. weekdays (11 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. weekends) at MOSI is part of the science center's Da Vinci exhibit. Go back in time to help famous inventors solve their dilemmas. Included with admission at 4801 E Fowler Ave., Tampa. $25.95 adults (13-59), $19.95 child (2-12), and $22.45 seniors (60+).

To watch

SEASON FINALE, Human Target, 8 p.m., Fox: How did Chance, Winston and Guerrero come together? Find out through flashbacks. Then forget you ever saw it, as this show's probably not coming back for a second season.

SERIES FINALE, Ugly Betty, 10 p.m., ABC: This is the last of the Mode crew. But at least we'll have Glee to feed us gaytastic quirky characters.

South Park, 10 p.m., Comedy Central: Can you believe this is South Park's 200th episode? We can remember when Stan and Kyle were just kids!
