Relaxed Screening: Blade Runner 2049 2D (15)

Film still from Blade Runner 2049

Set several decades after the 1982 original, a new blade runner discovers a long-buried secret that has the potential to send what's left of society into complete chaos.

Harrison Ford returns to play Rick Deckard, a former LAPD blade runner, alongside Ryan Gosling playing Officer K, in this long awaited release.

Officer K unearths a secret about the dystopian world of Los Angeles in 2049 that could have devastating effects for the whole of society. This discovery leads K on a quest to find Deckard, who has been missing for over 30 years.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve, the Oscar-nominated director of Arrival, working alongside Ridley Scott, director of the 1982 original Blade Runner, who is on board as executive producer.

Relaxed Screenings
Relaxed screenings are specially tailored for film fans who may be on the autistic spectrum, have Tourette Syndrome, anxiety, sensory difficulties or other learning disabilities.

The cinema environment is tailored to the needs of the audience by having the lights dimmed, though not off, and the volume levels a little lower than usual. Attendees are free to sit in whichever seat they like and can enter and exit the room at any time, with easy access for any wheelchair users. Staff are trained and ready to assist with any help the audience may need during these trips to the cinema at the Barbican.
