Last week Saturday (10/28/17) my two movie going friends and I attended an afternoon showing of Blade Runner 2049 at the Ward Theater.

If you do go please sit close to the screen because the captions displayed through out the movie used a very small point size.

On the other hand at least this movie did a better job explaining what is a Replicant.

Hard to say if one needs to see the original Blade Runner before seeing this movie. One of the movie going friends said it had been years since she saw the original. And it's been years for me as well even though I got the DVDs for all of the versions that has been released.
