Live in DFW? See BLADE RUNNER The Final Cut at Texas Theatre or Angelika Dallas this weekend

One of my favorite sci-fi films of all time is easily BLADE RUNNER.  Over 30 years ago, the Ridley Scott film starring Harrison Ford and Sean Young redefined the way we look at science fiction movies, though it took some time for the cult status to really kick in.  If you never got to see BLADE RUNNER on the big screen, that can change this weekend.  Our friends at the historic Texas Theatre and the Angelika in Mockingbird Station are doing a special screening this weekend this of THE FINAL CUT. Two different places to see it, one very cool film. The Texas Theatre is showing is Friday night at 9pm and Sunday night at 6:30pm, the Angelika is showing it Friday and Saturday night at 11:30pm. Either location would be a great place to see Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer (his best performance ever?), Edward James Olmos, M. Emmet Walsh, Daryl Hannah, William Sanderson, Brion James, Joe Turkel, Joanna Cassidy, and James Hong uttering all those highly-quotable lines, accompanied by the sweeping Vangelis score.  It shall be glorious, and we hope you’ll be there to share in the moment.  Again, the version showing at both locations is THE FINAL CUT, which is the most-complete and personally approved version of director Ridley Scott.
