The Blade Runner Saga

Mar 17 — Mar 18, 2018

Thirty-five years after the release of Blade Runner, the visual language of contemporary science fiction is still drawing from the dark and rainy vision of Los Angeles set in an imagined future. This past year saw a direct continuation of that vision with Blade Runner 2049, trading rain for snow to suit Canadian director Denis Villeneuve’s sensibilities as he pushed past the legacy left by the original, asking new questions and expanding the scope both technically and emotionally. Both films are presented here on the big screen, including Ridley Scott’s definitive Final Cut (2007).

On view in the Behind the Screen galleries is the Tyrell Corporation model, used in the original Blade Runner.
