Regent Street Cinema Presents: Blade Runner
Ridley Scott's perfect 80s, sci-fi classic
Regent Cinema – Britain's oldest cinema – was the first place in the country to ever show moving pictures, kickstarting British cinema with a screening of Cinematographe in 1896. Since its reopening in May 2015 the staff have been dedicated to both engaging with the cinemas legacy and ensuring its future for audiences and filmmakers. Adapted from Philip K Dick’s novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" Harrison Ford excels as the world weary detective Rick Deckard hunting down mutinous, murderous replicants in an oppressive futuristic cosmopolis. Given complete artistic freedom to make The Final Cut in 2007, the 25th anniversary of the films opening, Ridley Scott created this final, definitive version – fully restored from the original negative. Certificate: 15. Runtime: 1 hour 54 minutes.
"Blade Runner, in all its various, shimmering incarnations, is deathless."
