Logan’s Run
“Welcome to the future. Our wall light technology is centuries ahead of yours”

It’s the 23rd century and the human race is confined to a giant indoor golf dome where life is full of no work, all play and for some reason no indoor golfing. Instead you’re killed off when you hit the ripe old age of 30 in a weird 70’s disco version of Cirque Du Soleil. I guess it’s some sort of societal right of passage to thin the herd. You even have a little red light on your hand to remind you it’s time to go. Kinda like a mortality alarm clock with no snooze button. The few people tha try to escape the dome are known as runners and the police that track them are known as Sandmen. Logan played by Michael York is a Sandman who learns the truth of their society (who in turn has his light-hand switch to dead) and starts his own running. Along with his new found girlfriend Jessica played by Jenny Agutter, they make their way to the legend of sanctuary to escape the dome and bring the truth back to their people. The truth is pretty lame as they find is just an old crazy guy with a thousand cats. Maybe they should have just stayed in the golf dome. If you like THX 1138 you’ll love this movie. Great 70’s sci-fi nostalgia.
