Cinespia and The Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation present a one night only screening of Blade Runner in the location where it was filmed. Blade Runner has become the quintessential Los Angeles film, despotic and dreamily beautiful, it shows downtown in all its faded glory. It has also become the gold standard for science fiction cinema, and its breathtaking vision is timeless.

Sid Grauman‘s first major theatre was named Grauman’s Theatre when it opened on February 1, 1918 with William S. Hart in “The Silent Man” Following the hype over its price tag, it soon became known as Grauman’s Million Dollar Theatre, although it was not officially named this until 1922. The auditorium was built behind the twelve story Edison office building, the exterior is a magnificent example, of a variation of Spanish Rococo style, known as Churrigueresque. Deeply molded features decorate the theatre entrance and higher up on the facade are heroic figures of the arts, with symbols of western Americana, such as bison head, eagles, and longhorn steer skulls, all the work of sculptor Joseph Mora.
