Blade Runner (1982) Film screening
In a future of high-tech possibility soured by urban and social decay, Rick Deckard hunts for fugitive, murderous replicants and is drawn to a mystery woman whose secrets may undermine his soul.
This screening of Ridley Scott’s definitive sci-fi noir will be a screening of the ‘Final Cut’ version, which more closely reflects Scott’s original vision of the film.
Most of the incredible special effects were supervised and directed by Douglas Trumbull. A pioneer in special visual effects filmmaking, Trumbull worked on other iconic science fiction films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. He also directed the films Silent Running and Brainstorm.
Director: Ridley Scott
