Million Dollar in Blade Runner

by Veronica Paredes

In the precise and exact depiction of Los Angeles in 2019, the filmmakers of BLADE RUNNER seem to have left the marquee of the Million Dollar Theatre with the orchestra and band leader names that were playing at the theater during the time of shooting. If at least in its marquees, Broadway already fit into Ridley Scott's vision of the city's future in the early 1980s.
