Blade Runner is the featured film at the Santa Fe Institute's Science on Screen Series at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Center for Contemporary Arts, 1050 Old Pecos Trail in Santa Fe.

The "Science On Screen" series in Santa Fe is a joint collaboration of the Center for Contemporary Arts (CCA) and the Santa Fe Institute (SFI).

During each event, visionaries from SFI present some of their favorite films, offering eye-opening perspectives from their own research and the world of science. It's an idea-rich spin on the movies. 

Abstract: Though Ridley Scott's classic — one of the all-time greatest science-fiction films — has been analyzed in many ways, Assistant Professor Nathan Collins of the University of California at Irvine, a political scientist, takes an election-year-inspired approach: "What might these cyborgs teach us about voter education and preferences?"

Tickets for each screening are $9.50 for general admission, $8.50 for students/seniors, $8 for CCA members, and $7 for senior CCA members and children under 12.

For advance tickets, call the CCA box office at 505-982-1338.
