Sci-Fi: Triple Feature
In the Year of the City 2274, humans live in a vast, domed metropolis, where computerized servo-mechanisms provide all needs so everyone can pursue endless hedonism. Endless, that is, until Last day, when anyone who's 30 must submit to Carousel, a soaring, spinning trip to eternity and supposed rebirth. Michael York plays Logan 5, a Sandman authorized to terminate Runners fleeing Carousel. Logan is almost 30. Catch him if you can.
The Omega Man
Biological war has decimated life on Earth. Los Angeles is a windswept ghost town where Neville (Charlton Heston) tools his convertible through sunlit streets foraging for supplies. And makes damn sure he gets undercover before sundown, when other "inhabitants" emerge. He becomes a man with a mission after meeting Lisa (Rosaline Cash), another uninfected survivor - and guardian of some healthy children representing our species' hope. The Omega Man is a high-impact, high-tension saga of a fate not fare removed from reality.
Soylent Green is landmark science-fiction film, a cautionary tale that holds a mirror to a tomorrow rife with ecological disaster. Charlton Heston portrays Thorn, a detective prowling the dank streets of a polluted, overpopulated Big Apple gone rotten in 2022. He's trailing a murderer - and a trial leads to a stunning, grisly discovery.
