The Blade Runner 2049 Experience at MLK Promenade

Fans who are eagerly anticipating the long-awaited “Blade Runner” sequel, “Blade Runner 2049,” will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to step into the unique world of Alcon Entertainment’s new film, months before its October 6th theatrical release. Located in the heart of San Diego’s famed Gaslamp Quarter, the Blade Runner 2049 Experience will replicate the movie’s setting, complete with the unique sights, sounds and atmosphere of Los Angeles, circa 2049. Presented by Alcon Entertainment and Johnnie Walker, the activation will be open to the public over Comic-Con weekend—Thursday, July 20th, to Sunday, July 23rd. Everyone is welcome; you do not need a Comic-Con badge to enter.

Setting the tone, the experience begins as guests enter through a gallery of art from “Blade Runner 2049.” An Oculus VR experience will immerse visitors in the world of the film. But that is just the start: as the VR presentation ends, guests will walk into a neon-lit Los Angeles street scene, where they should be prepared to experience what our potential future holds, including impromptu tests to determine if they are humans…or replicants.

  • Friday, July 21 10AM – 7PM
