November 2019 is only six and a half years away. But in 1982, a decade before gentrification, before commercial-redevelopment dollars poured into Los Angeles, director Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner was hailed as a visionary achievement in production design, a bleak snapshot of the city’s dystopian but technologically advanced future, in which cops track and terminate rogue androids rebelling against their planned obsolescence. OK, so maybe that last bit was a stretch. And the flying cars. But hey, we have Segways now. That’s progress, right? The film, starring Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer, screens at 6:30 p.m. in the Durwood Film Vault at the Kansas City Central Library (14 West 10th Street, 816-701-3400). See kclibrary.org.
