Event Details

Experience Ridley Scott’s multi-Academy Award®-nominated cult classic, Blade Runner (2007 Final Cut), on a vast HD screen while Vangelis’ synthesizer-led score is performed by a Chicago Philharmonic chamber orchestra in sync with the 1982 motion picture.

“Vangelis creates not only a music score but an entire soundscape…” 

Blade Runner’s film score has REVOLUTIONIZED the way we view synthesizers in music by utilizing the iconic Yamaha CS-80. Blade Runner was proof that synthesizers can convey deep emotions, create exceptional soundscapes, and enhance storytelling in film. The soundtrack’s impact has transformed electronic music and film scoring ever since, demonstrating the enduring power of Vangelis’ trailblazing innovations.

“The single most immersive and tactile world ever created for the cinema.” — Time Out

In this stylish noir thriller, detective Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) must continue as Replicant Hunter following the escape of 4 Replicants from colonies who’ve returned to Earth. His mission however is complicated when he falls for Rachel (Sean Young); a Replicant based at the Tyrell Corporation.

“Scott’s visionary thriller makes the acid rain/neon-drenched Los Angeles of 2019 a far colder, more violent and depressing place.” — Radio Times
