Another pair of Sunset on the Beach festivals of food booths, entertainment and films is scheduled for today and tomorrow at Queen's Surf Beach in Waikiki.

Tonight's movie on that 30-foot screen is "March of the Penguins," which is nominated for best documentary feature in tomorrow's Oscars. Parents, beware: Because of the natural life-and-death adventures of the penguins, some scenes might be tough for the littlest kids.

Tomorrow's movie is "Zathura," the tale of two squabbling brothers and their sister who find themselves in outer space.

Sunset events begin at 4 p.m. The films hit the screen after the sun goes down. Admission is free. 923-1094.
