It’s coming a couple of weeks late, considering the “futuristic” movie is set in 2019, but there’s never a bad time to watch “Blade Runner” on the big screen. Especially when it’s “Blade Runner: The Final Cut,” the 2007 rerelease of the only version of the sci-fi classic over which director Ridley Scott had complete control. See Harrison Ford, Sean Young and the late Rutger Hauer on-screen at 1 and 6 p.m. Sunday and Wednesday at Galaxy Theatres locations at the Boulevard Mall, the Cannery and Green Valley.

Dean Delray

Dean Delray (3 Arts Entertainment)

If Sam Kinison set the template for the comedian as rock star in the ’80s, Dean Delray is its modern archetype. But whereas Kinison ventured into the heavy metal lifestyle after becoming a superstar on the stand-up circuit, Delray cut his teeth in the vibrant, violent Bay Area thrash scene that birthed genre greats such as Exodus, Metallica and Testament. Nowadays, Delray is best known for his popular “Let There Be Talk” podcast, which features comics and rockers as well as his candid, cutting comedy that comes at you like one of the Harleys he’s been known to ride. See him at 7 and 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday at the Comedy Cellar at the Rio. Tickets are $45, or $25 for locals with a valid ID; call 702-777-2782.
