Beauty is Embarrassing. The Tucson Museum of Contemporary Art is screening a documentary based on the life of contemporary artist Wayne White.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe, like one of the best sci-fi films of all time becoming even more amazing by giving director Ridley Scott full artistic control. This masterpiece goes further than the original by including extended scenes and never-before-seen special effects culled from restored archive materials.

10 p.m. Friday, May 25, through Monday, May 28. Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway. 3233 E Speedway Blvd. $6.

Jurassic Park at the Drive In. Cactus Drive-In Theatre is showing the '90s classic at the Tanque Verde Swap Meet.

Crimes and Misdemeanors. Cinema la Placita is showing a classic comedy tale of infidelity and questionable choices. Unsurprisingly directed by Woody Allen. Three dollars gets you in and gets you a bag of popcorn! 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., Thursday, May 31. Tucson Museum of Art plaza, 140 N. Main Ave. $3.
