BLADE RUNNER (1982)
Cert 15  | 114min

A blend of science fiction and noir detective fiction, Blade Runner was a box office and critical bust upon its initial exhibition, but its unique postmodern production design became hugely influential within the sci-fi genre, and the film gained a significant cult following that increased its stature.

HAIRSPRAY (1988)
Cert PG | 92min

Hairspray is perhaps John Waters’ most accessible film, and as such, it’s a gently subversive slice of retro hilarity. Forever interested in the kitsch built into past eras, director John Waters chooses the TV dance show craze of the early ’60s for his playful focus in Hairspray. Ricki Lake plays Tracy Turnblad, just one of several alliteratively named characters coming of age in 1962 Baltimore, where “The Corny Collins Show” is. Come along with your costumes and crazy wigs.
