Cinecure Free Film Screening of "Blade Runner"
  • Bread and Roses. 62 Ebrington Street, Plymouth PL4 9AF

Save event

Cinecure is a cosy evening of free film and talk at the Bread and Roses free house, held once a month. 

We enjoy teasing out some of the subterranean thematic threads of popular and more obscure films in short pre-film talks. This month, we are screening Blade Runner, the final cut, and will be examining its relationality to Fritz Lang's Metropolis

If you enjoy fine drink, fine film, and hopefully coherent discussions, then this may be just the thing for you. 

Blade Runner is a 1982 American neo-noir dystopian science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos. The screenplay, written by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples, is a modified film adaptation of the 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.

The film depicts a dystopian Los Angeles in November 2019 in which genetically engineered replicants, which are visually indistinguishable from adult humans, are manufactured by the powerful Tyrell Corporation as well as by other "mega-corporations" around the world. Their use on Earth is banned and replicants are exclusively used for dangerous, menial, or leisure work on off-world colonies. Replicants who defy the ban and return to Earth are hunted down and "retired" by special police operatives known as "Blade Runners". The plot focuses on a desperate group of recently escaped replicants hiding in Los Angeles and the burnt-out expert Blade Runner, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who reluctantly agrees to take on one more assignment to hunt them down.

Please note that due to space restrictions at this venue, seating is only available on a first-come-first-served basis (maximum audience of 20).
