One of the most critically acclaimed and influential science fiction masterpieces returns to the big screen!

Now is the perfect time to revisit the original cult classic!

The screening will be of the Final Cut, visionary director Ridley Scott’s final word on providing the definitive version for audiences, who will be able to see it as intended on the Orpheum’s biggest screen.

Blade Runner initially polarized critics: some were displeased with the pacing, while others enjoyed its thematic complexity.
The film performed poorly in North American theatres but has since become one of the quintessential cult film.
It has been hailed for its production design, depicting a “retrofitted” future and remains a leading example of the neo-noir genre.
It brought the work of Philip K. Dick to the attention of Hollywood and several later films were based on his work.
Ridley Scott regards Blade Runner as “probably” his most complete and personal film. In 1993, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

Blade Runner is now regarded as one of the best science fiction films ever made, often by the same critics who derided it on its initial release.

“Misunderstood when it first hit theatres, the influence of Ridley Scott’s mysterious, neo-noir Blade Runner has deepened with time. A visually remarkable, achingly human sci-fi masterpiece.” – Rotten Tomatoes

“Blade Runner, in all its various, shimmering incarnations, is deathless” – The Guardian

“As intricately detailed as anything a science-fiction film has yet envisioned” – New York Times

“This is perhaps the only science-fiction film that can be called transcendental” – Entertainment Weekly

“This is a seminal film, building on older classics like Metropolis or Things to Come, but establishing a pervasive view of the future that has influenced science fiction films ever since” – Roger Ebert
