Have you seen the latest Denis Villeneuve movie yet? Sicario is still playing in loads of theatres, and you should catch it on the big screen while you still can. See our review, the trailer and showtimes here.

Check out a triple vernissage for a show at Centre Clark showing the work of three artists: Augustin Rebetez’s Factory Behind Your Brain, sculptor Francine Lalonde’s “Désirs Fantomes” and an audio post by sound artist Alexandre Burton. 5455 de Gaspé #114, 8 p.m., free

The Real City Battle League hosts Bottom 2 the Top, a hip hop event featuring rap battles and performances. See the full talent list here.  Allure Bar & Lounge (1222 Mackay), 8 p.m., $10/$15 after 9 p.m.

Only five months after packing the house at Quai des Brumes (see our review here), 25-year-old Texas soul singer Leon Bridges returns to play the Corona Theatre with opener Kali Uchis. 2490 Notre-Dame W., 8:30 p.m., $27/$30
