NEW RELEASE: PICK OF THE MONTH

Blade Runner 2049.     October 6, 2017

Ridley Scott’s original Blade Runner (1982) was a monumental achievement in filmmaking that set a new standard for the sci-fi genre. Blade Runner 2049 is set 30 years after the events of the first film where a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

If the film is half as good a the trailer, we’re in for a great ride.


NEW RELEASE: UNDER THE SURFACE PICK

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)      October 13, 2017
