London | Spring 2018
The dystopian neon-lit streets of Los Angeles were brought to life, audiences brushed shoulders with replicants and humans alike and plenty of secrets were uncovered along the way…
Audiences were transported to futuristic Los Angeles, a city on the brink of destruction. From a bustling Eastern market filled with countless curiosities to the whiskey-fuelled Snake Pit Bar, acid rain storms plagued the neon skyline and all inhabitants who roamed below.
Rain soaked streets
There's no escpaing the rain soaked Los Angeles Chinatown? Did you dance in the rain, brush past Deskard, or just sit and eat noodles?
Were you in the market for the latest Rep-tech? Hannibal Chew was available to talk you through his latest work.
The Snake Pit, one of the most notorious bars in Los Angeles, was subjected to a surprise raid by detectives in search of outlaw Replicants performing there. Did you manage to escape?
As ever, the LAPD were on a relentless crackdown of rogue Replicants, stopping random passers-by they suspected of not being quite human enough. Did you pass the test?
Best night of my life... It was all so brilliant.
The moment you stepped into this world, you stepped out of reality and straight into the film.
It was terrifying and magical and completely wonderful.
A message for those that did not get a chance to attend: I have seen things you people wouldn't believe...
Closest you’ll ever get to living the movie… 10/10
Exciting, evocative and loaded with detail
A dream-come-true experience
Real life quickly begins to pale in comparison
Taking the dystopian setting of Blade Runner as a cautionary example we partnered with two ecological charities: World Land Trust and Trees for Cities. Together over £20,000 was raised, of which £10,000 will support the planting of a new fruit orchard in Newham.
