Blade Runner at Fed Square

See the classic 1980s sci-fi flick in full at Federation Square
Calling all humans and replicants: Fed Square is hosting a free screening of Ridley Scott’s 1982 film Blade Runner.
The film (an adaptation of Phillip K Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) follows blade runner Rick Deckard (played by Harrison Ford) as he hunts down rogue replicants – synthetically-made humans made for labour. Things are made slightly more complicated when Deckard falls in love with a replicant called Rachael.
As fans of Blade Runner can confirm, there are several different cuts of the film. Federation Square however will be showing the final cut version of the movie (of which Ridley Scott had the most creative control over).
The free screening begins at 8.30pm on Saturday, November 9. There are 50 deckchairs up for grabs in front of Fed Square’s big screen but they go fast – bring something to sit on and something to keep warm.
