So, you’ve seen the trailer for the new Blade Runner movie. Me too. And I’m feeling impatient, too. But maybe the original will help?

They’re showing it over food tonight at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox, 1215 20th St. There’s no cover, just the cost of your food and drinks. It starts at 9 p.m. 


If an even older flick is more your speed tonight, head over to the Esquire Theatre, 590 Downing St., where they’re having a special screening of “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.”

The 1967 classic stars Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn as the parents forced to examine their intolerance when their daughter, played by Katharine Houghton, introduces her fiancé, played by Sidney Poitier.

It’s showing at 2 p.m. (sneak off for a matinee!) and at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8.50.


It’s New Blood night at Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St., which means Ratio Comedy will once again offer up some fresh comic meat.

Up tonight: Allison Rose, Roger Stafford, Nate Balding and Robbie Pankow.

There’s no cover and it starts at 8 p.m.


Kehlani is at the Ogden Theatre, 935 E. Colfax Ave., tonight, and the show is somehow not sold out.

If you like good music, grab yourself a ticket. They’re $30.
