American Cinematheque Tribute to Rutger Hauer

This week, the American Cinematheque pays tribute to the late actor Rutger Hauer with a quartet of screenings running Thursday through Sunday.

The complete schedule is:

  • Blade Runner - Thursday, August 8
  • Ladyhawke Flesh+Blood - Friday, August 9
  • The HitcherNighthawksHobo with a Shotgun - Saturday, August 10
  • The Blood of HeroesBlind Fury - Sunday, August 11

All screenings take place at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, starting at 7:30pm.
