MOVIES

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’

The one good thing about the lack of big-ticket movies this fall? A chance to relive movies that deserve another chance. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is returning to Imax theaters for a week, along with exclusive footage from “Andor,” the Disney+ prequel series debuting Sept. 21. For the rerelease, both the image and sound have been digitally remastered. See it starting Friday at AMC Town Square.

MUSIC

Duran Duran

Still putting hearts in headlocks decades in, the pretty boys in Duran Duran are getting pretty high up there in years (frontman Simon Le Bon is 63). While we all get old, a great songbook doesn’t, and Duran Duran’s synth-heavy, new wave-mining repertoire certainly qualifies as such. See them at 8 p.m. Sept. 1 and 3 at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas. Shows are sold out; resale tickets are available at ticketmaster.com.
