Regent Street Cinema Presents: Blade Runner
Enjoy Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic at Britain's oldest cinema
Regent Street Cinema is Britain's oldest picturehouse. On 21 February 1896, it became the birthplace of cinema in the UK, when the Lumière brothers used their Cinematographé machine to show the earliest of moving images to a paying audience. Having reopened in May 2015, the staff have been dedicated to engaging with the cinema's groundbreaking legacy, showcasing everything from classic films, internationally acclaimed work and even the odd blockbuster. 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. "Film noir cubed, science fiction a step beyond 2001." – LA Times "A masterpiece of dystopian science fiction on film." – Daily Telegraph Certificate: 15. Runtime: 1 hour 54 minutes.
"Blade Runner, in all its various, shimmering incarnations, is deathless."
