-"DIRT! The Movie": Dirt: It's fun to garden in, fun to roll in, and fun to eat. But we often fail to recognize the intimate relationship the human race has with soil, which preceded civilization and has been continually utilized and manipulated by man and machine since humans realized we could grow and build stuff from it. Jamie Lee Curtis narrates a documentary exploring the damaged relationship between the human race and soil and how we can return to the mutually beneficial relationship we once had. 7:30 p.m., Red Emma's, 30 W. North Ave., (443) 602-7585, redemmas.org, free. (Maura Callahan)

-"Blade Runner": We were on a "Blade Runner" kick all last year after we noticed how much our 2014 resembled the 2019 in Ridley Scott's adaptation of Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" We even held a screening and panel discussion a few weeks back at the Windup Space, which felt appropriate because Station North is the epicenter of the "Blade Runner"-ish aspects of our city. After we planned our screening, we heard the revival series was gonna show the final cut, so we went with the U.S. theatrical version and are now psyched to check it out (again) without the voice-over and happy ending, in the version where it is even more obvious that Deckard is Descartes wondering what—and who—is really real, a journey that will ultimately bring him back to himself. 11:30 a.m., The Charles Theater, 1711 N. Charles St., (410) 727-3464, thecharles.com, $7.50-$9.50. (Baynard Woods)
