To celebrate the release of Spielberg's big-screen adaptation, Picturehouse Culture Shock presents a season of the retro sci-fi classics referenced in Ernest Cline's pop-cultural odyssey.

In Ridley Scott’s brooding, doom-laden thriller set in a spectacularly imagined future Los Angeles, a hired killer named Deckard (Ford) tracks down a group of renegade androids who have escaped from slavery on a colonised planet. Loosely based on Philip K. Dick’s paranoid masterpiece Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, and undoubtedly one of the most influential sci-fi movies of all time, BLADE RUNNER was famously butchered in previous studio versions, including a so-called director’s cut that was nothing of the sort.

This ‘final cut’ is the only version over which Scott had full artistic control, and with its intense atmosphere, breath-taking visuals and lavishly eerie soundtrack by Vangelis, it’s an unforgettable big-screen experience.
