Whether you’re a sci-fi fan or classical music enthusiast — (Maybe you’re both?), there’s something for you to do in Boca Raton this weekend.

Mark your calendars, here are a few events happening in Boca:

» “Star Wars.” Enough said. The Mizner Park Amphitheater is screening the wildly popular, most recent film in the “Star Wars” series, “Star Force: The Force Awakens.” The outdoor screening is free and begins at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5. Bring your own blankets and lounge on the grassy lawn. (Pro tips: Get there early because the lawn fills quickly. Food and drinks are available for purchase at the event.) The Mizner Park Amphitheater is at 590 Plaza Real.

» Burgers and craft beer, anyone? Barrel of Monks, Boca’s Belgian-style brewery, is teaming up with Tucker Duke’s, people’s choice for “Boca’s Best Burger” for three year’s in a row, on Friday, Aug. 4 between 5-10 p.m. The event is at the brewery, 1141 S. Rogers Circle #5. (A Post reporter recommends trying Barrel of Monks S’Tart sour ale.)

» Symphony of the Americas. On Sunday, Aug. 7, Florida Atlantic University is hosting the Summerfest Chamber Orchestra, which features several international soloists and musicians. The music of Vivaldi, Giuseppe Tartini and Ernest Bloch, among several others, will be performed. Ticket prices range from $20-$45 depending on seating.
