Blade Runner (2007)
We are slipping in one of the last theatrical screenings of the “original” before it is blacked out of theatres leading up to the long-awaited sequel “Blade Runner 2049” is released in October.
Based on a Philip K. Dick novel, it is the year 2019 and ex-detective Rick Deckard is called out of retirement to track down and eliminate a team of humanoid androids that have escaped from an outer space mining colony and have taken refuge on Earth. During his search for the fugitives, he discovers some disturbing secrets about the future plans of the androids' manufacturer, the Tyrell Corporation, and the line between human and android is disturbingly blurred.
Starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos. Directed by Ridley Scott.
Originally released in 1982, we will screen 2007’s “The Final Cut” version. 1 hour, 57 minutes. Screened in English on DCP.
"Movies at the Palace" take place at the stunning United Palace, formerly the Loew's 175th Street Theatre that first opened as a deluxe movie theatre and vaudeville house in 1930. We honor that past while reinventing the movie-going experience by pairing classic titles with pre-show entertainment and expert Q&A’s. The year-long series of “Movies that Reawaken Wonder” celebrates both the Palace’s past as a Wonder Theatre and recent cinematic rebirth, including Lin-Manuel Miranda’s 2016 donation of a DCP projector.
