DYSTOPIA GONE WILD: 30 YEARS AFTER 1984
Triple Feature!
NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR / LOGAN'S RUN / SPACEDISCO ONE
30th Anniversary!

NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR
1984, MGM/Park Circus, 113 min, UK, Dir: Michael Radford

John Hurt and Suzanna Hamilton are lovers trapped in an oppressive police state who heroically fight against the all-powerful "Big Brother." Director Michael Radford's (IL POSTINO) adaptation of George Orwell's classic novel perfectly captures the book's deep sense of unease, and Richard Burton gives a great late-career performance as an evil but human government official.


LOGAN'S RUN
1976, Warner Bros., 120 min, USA, Dir: Michael Anderson

Life in the future is a dream filled with pleasurable pursuits. The only catch: Once you turn 30, you're eliminated. Michael York plays an expert at catching people who try to flee the system - a system he gradually comes to question.


SPACEDISCO ONE
2007, 58 min, USA, Dir: Damon Packard

In this sequel of sorts to both LOGAN’S RUN and 1984, George Orwell's Winston Smith runs into the daughters of Logan 5 and Francis 7 as they're busy running amok in a park, shooting laser beams at one another. A roller-skating rink in space, “Battlestar Galactica” references and a Ministry of Truth (also known as Universal CityWalk) are all part of this psychedelic sci-fi odyssey.


Screening formats: 35mm (NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR), DCP (LOGAN'S RUN), and Blu-ray (SPACEDISCO ONE)
