Description

Vortex Blazers of 1982
THURSDAY AUGUST 22 DOUBLE FEATURE

BLADE RUNNER The Final Cut 3:00, 7:00 Harrison Ford is Rick Deckard, an ex-cop forced out of retirement to hunt four renegade android slaves on the acid rain swept streets of dystopian Los Angeles, circa NOW. The last film to feature fully analog visual effects remains an unmatched melding of sci-fi and film noir. See Ridley Scott’s immersive vision of our future where it’s best appreciated: on the Castro’s expansive silver screen! Rutger Hauer (R.I.P.), Sean Young, Daryl Hannah, William Sanderson, Edward James Olmos, and the music of Vangelis co-star. (1982/2007, 117 min, 4K DCP ‘Scope)

+ TRON 5:10, 9:10
Groundbreaking (for their time) computer effects highlight this Disney sci-fi thriller about brilliant software engineer and hacker Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), who's transported into a digitalized computer world where he must help free the system's video game warriors from the despotic rule of the dreaded Master Control Program. Steven Lisberger’s film is a visual and aural delight; the electronic score by Wendy Carlos adds to the futuristic ambiance. Bruce Boxleitner, David Warner, Cindy Morgan, Dan Shor, and Barnard Hughes also star. (1982, 96 min, DCP ‘Scope)
