BLADERUNNER
[Running time: 117 minutes]
Box Office opens @ 6:00pm | Doors open @ 7:00 | Curtain rises @ 8:00pm
All Tickets: $5.00 (ticket prices include facility fee)

BLADERUNNER (1982) - Harrison Ford stars as Deckard, a hard-boiled cynical "bladerunner" who is tasked with tracking down and eliminating rebellious artificial human "replicants" who have escaped to Los Angeles. As he closes in on his quarry, Deckard begins to discover what it truly means to be human... One of the most powerful and important science fiction films of the 20th century, Bladerunner established a vision of the future that has influenced science fiction movies for the past three decades. It is a bleak future - a future ruled by the technological elite, ruined by economic and environmental exploitation, and inhabited by helpless, lonely people. Adapted from Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and originally released in 1982, this is the "Final Cut" version released by director Ridley Scott in 2007. The film's special effects provide a wealth of stunning visual detail that demands to be viewed on a large movie screen - at the Paramount Theatre! [more...]
