Blade Runner & Alien double bill

  • Posted by: Steve Biodrowski
  • Event Date & Time: July 6-10
  • Location: New Beverly Cineam - 7165 Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles
  • In Person: Paul M. Sammon (author of "Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner"

Great news for fans of Ridley Scott: Starting Sunday, the New Beverly Cinema will be screening a double bill of BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT and ALIEN: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT. Although both are out on DVD, these are films that really deserve to be seen on the big screen; this is an especially important chance to see the final cut of BLADE RUNNER in a theatre, since this version received only a token theatrical release last year before arriving on home video.

As an extra, added inducement, former Cinefantastique writer Paul M. Sammon will be in attendance at the 7:00pm Sunday screening of BLADE RUNNER. The author of FUTURE NOIR: THE MAKING OF BLADE RUNNER (Harper) will discuss the film and answer questions from the audience. He will also bring along some behind-the-scene photos of the making of the film.


  • BLADE RUNNER: Sun: 2:20 & 7:00; Mon-Thu: 7:30 only
    ALIEN: Sun: 4:40 only; Mon-Thu: 9:50
