Due to circumstances beyond our control, we regret that our planned screenings of Blade Runner: The Final Cut have had to be cancelled as the rights have been withdrawn by the distributor. Ticket holders are being contacted by Box Office. We will instead be screening Close Encounters Of The Third Kind on Sat 30 September.
Director: Ridley Scott
Cast: Harrison Ford, Daryl Hannah, Rutger Haur, Sean Young.
In Ridley Scott’s brooding, doom-laden thriller set in a spectacularly imagined future Los Angeles, a hired killer named Deckard (Ford) tracks down a group of renegade androids who have escaped from slavery on a colonised planet.
Loosely based on Philip K. Dick’s paranoid masterpiece Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, and undoubtedly one of the most influential sci-fi movies of all time, Blade Runner was famously butchered in previous studio versions, including a so-called director’s cut that was nothing of the sort.
This ‘final cut’ is the only version over which Scott had full artistic control.
