Ridley Scott's Blade Runner played its part in reshaping the cinematic landscape with its initial release in 1982, a re-release in 2007 and the release of a Ryan Gosling-starring sequel in 2017.
Now, the Royal Albert Hall is adding yet another layer to rediscover, with the world premiere of Blade Runner Live: a screening of the 2007 Final Cut, accompanied by an in-sync live performance of the unmistakable Vangelis score courtesy of the Avex Ensemble – a 14-piece musical ensemble featuring synthesizers, strings, brass, bass and percussion.
The film's legacy lives on through its visceral and innovative world-building abilities, which comes through in Harrison Ford's mesmeric performance visually as much as the sounds of a thousand synthesizers working in harmony.
In terms of the story, Ford plays detective Rick Deckard, on a mission to hunt down non-human threats named 'replicants' and protect life as we know it. But when he meets a replicant and falls in love, naturally, things become more complicated.
Discover or rediscover the incomparable magic of the original film in a grandiose setting, both visually and sonically this Autumn.
