All kinds of awesome from Secret Cinema as usual. This time our shuttle bus taking us to the space port for our flight to the Off World Colonies was pulled over by some Blade Runner dude and diverted to a holding area as a Replicant uprising had caused all flights to be cancelled. We ended up in a  dystopian Los Angeles, circa 2019, complete with snake merchants, eye makers, noodle bars, strip clubs and everything you need to make a pretty damn believable slice of the Blade Runner world.

 

Jason took a Voight-Kampff test, turns out he’s human, who’d have thought? I was rather pleased with my home brew lighty up umbrella. A good time was had by all – except for that stripper replicant who got shot to bits as we filed into the cinema, down-town LA in 2019 is a rough area.

 

Here’s some pics we took, or just pour yourself some whiskey and watch the slide show below.

 

  • Holy smokes that’s rad. Was it a screening of the film somewhere too?

  • yeah, they screened the film in the recreation of The Bradbury Building which they only opened up later in the evening so it was another surprise (they did this with a re-enactment of Decker shooting the stripper skin job in the back and then Sebastian and Pris entering the building, opening the door – awesome).

    During the finale they had a 2 guys in wires re-enact Batty’s death scene in a kind of peotic symbolic way, with a huge projection over the wall they were hanging on to make it look like the building, in the rain, with the TDK logo and the dove flying.
