FUTUREWORLD
1976, Park Circus/MGM, 107 min, Dir: Richard T Heffron

Entry fee: $1,200 per day - exit fee: your life! An amusement park of the future caters to any adult fantasy where lifelike androids carry out your every whim. A fun place, right? Not so, as a reporter (Peter Fonda) and his Girl Friday (Blythe Danner) find out while on a press junket to the newly opened Futureworld. Yul Brynner reprises his role as The Gunslinger in this sci-fi thriller that begins where WESTWORLD stopped.


THE TOMORROW MAN
2019, Bleecker Street Media, 94 min, USA, Dir: Noble Jones

Ed Hemsler (John Lithgow) spends his life preparing for a disaster that may never come. Ronnie Meisner (Blythe Danner) spends her life shopping for things she may never use. In a small town somewhere in America, these two people will try to find love while trying not to get lost in each other’s stuff.


ANOTHER WOMAN
1988, Park Circus/MGM, 81 min, USA, Dir: Woody Allen

With noisy construction going on where she lives, philosophy professor Marion Post (Gena Rowlands) rents a room in another building to complete her new book in peace. But now she’s next to a therapist’s office and can overhear the patients - among them an expectant mother (Mia Farrow) whose problems strike an unexpected chord with Marion. The top-flight supporting cast includes Gene Hackman, Blythe Danner, Ian Holm and, in his final film, John Houseman. This Bergman-esque drama (shot by Sven Nykvist) is among Allen’s most absorbing.
