See 'Blade Runner' on the big screen - free

Decades before CGI made special effects easier to produce, Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" was a visual feast, a neo-noir sci-fi that has become a cult classic. You can see stars Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer and Sean Young on the big screen at the Loft this weekend — and you might just score a pair of free tickets!

A sequel to the 1982 film is in the works, with Ford reprising his role, along with Ryan Gosling and Robin Wright in a movie directed by Denis Villeneuve ("Sicario").

From our friends at the Loft Cinema:

Visually spectacular, intensely action-packed and powerfully prophetic since its 1982 debut, the classic sci-fi/noir thriller Blade Runner returned in 2007 in a definitive Final Cut that gave director Ridely Scott full artistic control, allowing him to perfect this stunning masterpiece even further by including extended scenes and never-before-seen special effects culled from restored archive materials.

In a future of high-tech possibility soured by urban and social decay, 21st-century detective Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) hunts for fugitive, murderous replicants (led by Rutger Hauer), and is drawn to a mysterious woman (Sean Young) whose secrets may undermine his soul. Based on the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick, Blade Runner gave the world a darkly cynical view of a rain-soaked, neon-lit future that has inspired countless homages and imitations, none of which have matched the hypnotic power of the original. Co-starring Edward James Olmos, M. Emmet Walsh and Daryl Hannah, and featuring a haunting score by Vangelis, this is the definitive version of a modern-day classic. If ever there was a film meant to be seen on the big screen, this is it! (Dir. by Ridley Scott, 1982 /2007, USA/UK, 118 mins., Rated R)
