UK cinema release

Despite seeing this link a week or so ago

http://www.noblepr.co.uk/Press_Releases ... al_cut.htm

This is the reply I just received from one of my local cinemas

Thank you for your email. Unfortunately Blade Runner: The Final Cut is not being released on the cinema in any great capacity. Warner Bros may be showing it in a one-off capacity but nothing has been advertised to this effect. The only information that I can provide is that the film has been passed uncut running time 117 minutes and with a 15 certificate. I cannot provide you with any more information. You could contact Warner Bros home entertainment to find out if they have plans for a limited number of showings ahead of the DVD and HD-DVD release.

Yours

Odeon Guest Services

Well, at least they replied. :cry:

I just sent an email to Diana Privitera, Warner Bros. UK PUBLICITY CONTACT, inquiring about any venues in UK showing BR.

I'll post her response here when/if I get one.

Hi there



Last I heard the venues were still waiting to be confirmed but it will only be around 5-10 venues in the UK through Cityscreen.



Best wishes

Had another reply, a little more hopeful, but... :cry:

Thank-you for your enquiry, I think it is unlikely that we shall be screening BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT as our programme is now finalised until early January, but I shall bear it in mind if a gap becomes available.

Regards
Mark Ogden
Hull Screen FOH Manager


Still, they often do one-off showings.

I just googled Cityscreen and there's one in York! \:D/ Only 40 miles away. I've e-mailed them and am waiting in hope.





Now I've only got to persuade the missus. [-o<

Not York then. Bollocks.

The missus'll never let me out as far as Liverpool or Newcastle. :cry:

BR-FC Screening in Newcastle - where is this cinema?

Does any one know where the cinema is in Newcastle that will be screening BR-FC?

I e-mailed the National Media Museum in Bradford asking them if the would screen BR-FC ... no reply (yet!)

Blade Runner in Gateshead

Thanks for the quick reply about the Tyneside Cinema in Gateshead (Newcastle). I found their website and have sent them an e-mail asking for information.

It would seem very appropriate to see the film at a cinema in Gateshead - after all, this is where Ridley grew up and started his career.

Those opening cityscape scenes with the fire chimneys will have an even more profound impact.

I hope that the cinema will do the film justice.

Many thanks

I was rather surprised this didn?t play at the VUE West End London in THX! I guess Warner Village Cinemas formally (WVC) just weren?t interested.
I?ve seen things you people won?t believe.

Extra Screenings, New Venues (in the UK)

I have noticed more and more cinemas starting to have a short run of BR:FC.

For anyone within traveling distance of Bradford in West Yorkshire visit the National Media Museum - they are showing BR:FC on their Pictureville Cinema screen for a few days. (Big shame it is not being shown on their big IMAX screen - there is an amazing sound system in that auditorium).

And it's digital as well.
