**Unfortunately, previously-announced guest, TRON Cinematographer Bruce Logan, has had to cancel his Chicago trip, and will no longer be attending Q&As at our 70MM screenings. We apologize for any inconvenience.**

With Walt Disney Animation presumed comatose, the studio doubled-down on PG-rated live action sci-fi, first with THE BLACK HOLE and then TRON. Produced at the dawn of the personal computing age, TRON presents a credulous, colorful, and oddly literal vision of how data works, complete with rudimentary CGI graphics that still look sharp under 70mm scrutiny. Like an ‘80s version of THE WIZARD OF OZ set in an eight-bit arcade, the boundary between cold flesh and digital fantasy remains glitchy for Jeff Bridges and his gang of his happy hackers.
