Grand Rapids Public Library presents GR Reads: The Movies!
GRPL, The Meanwhile Bar, and Wealthy Theatre team up to present a screening of: "Blade Runner". Directed by Ridley Scott. Part of GRPL's summer reading series featuring works by the author, Philip K. Dick.
Deckard (Harrison Ford) is forced by the police Boss (M. Emmet Walsh) to continue his old job as Replicant Hunter. His assignment: eliminate four escaped Replicants from the colonies who have returned to Earth. Before starting the job, Deckard goes to the Tyrell Corporation and he meets Rachel (Sean Young), a Replicant girl he falls in love with. The film runs 1hr 57min and is rated R.
The version of the film screening on this evening will be what is considered "The Final Cut." This is the only version of the film where director Ridley Scott had complete artistic control, includes a brilliant picture/sound restoration, and is also widely-considered among fans to be the ideal version.
