Limited Capacity seats available

William F. Nolan, one of America’s most influential science fiction and horror writers, will travel to Buffalo to introduce  “Logan’s Run,” an Academy Award-nominated film based on his novel in Person!

The film stars  Michael York as Logan 5 and is set in an idyllic society in the year 2274.  Inhabitants live in an enclosed dome, where there is little work and humans are free to experience all the pleasures life has to offer.  There is one catch: when you reach 30, you are terminated in a quasi-religious ceremony known as Carousel. Some, known as runners, do try to escape their fate and it's the job of a Sandman to track them down and kill them

Logan is such a man and with several years before his own termination date, thinks nothing of the job he does. He is sent on a mission to find a "sanctuary," which is a code- word used by the master computer to describe what is believed to be a place to which runners have been escaping. Logan begins to question the system he serves after he goes on the run with a member of the underground sanctuary, Jessica 6, portrayed by Jenny Agutter.  After seeing for himself that there is life beyond the dome, he is determined to return to the dome to educate the others and to destroy the computer. The film also stars Richard Jordan and Farrah Fawcett.
