Oldies But Goodies
The library is always adding new “old” movies to the collection. In case you missed them, be sure to check out:
Blade Runner: The Final Cut (1982)
Los Angeles, 2019: Rick Deckard of the LAPD's Blade Runner unit prowls the steel & microchip jungle of the 21st century. His job is to track down and eliminate assumed humanoids known as 'replicants.' Replicants were declared illegal after a bloody mutiny on an Off-World Colony, and are to be terminated upon detection. He wants to get out of the force, but is drawn back in when six "skin jobs," the slang for replicants, hijack a ship back to Earth. The city that Deckard must search for his prey is a huge, sprawling, bleak vision of the future. Fun fact: the production designer for Blade Runner also designed the set for the doomed filming of Super Mario Brothers, which starred a shell-shocked Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo.
Rosemary's Baby (1968)
Based on Ira Levin's bestselling novel, Mia Farrow plays a young mother-to-be who grows increasingly suspicious that her over-friendly elderly neighbors and self-involved actor husband are hatching a satanic plot against her and her baby.
