Logan's Run script
Logan's Run (1976)
Synopsis: In the year 2274, young residents enjoy an idyllic, hedonistic lifestyle within the protective confines of a domed city. The general belief is that when each person turns 30, they are reincarnated for another blissful life cycle. Those who know the much darker truth become "runners" and flee to a hidden sanctuary. When law enforcement officer Logan (Michael York) goes undercover to locate the refuge, he winds up instead trying to initiate a revolution with runner Jessica (Jenny Agutter).

The violet light goes off.

FRANCIS (with affection:

to Logan)

Had enough?

LOGAN (looking at the infant)

Even the alarm didn't wake him.

As Francis starts out:

LOGAN (one last look;

joining Francis)

All right, Francis...I'm with you.

They move off down the corridor...the lights behind them DIMMING as

they pass cubicles suffused with soft pink light, CHILDREN

automatically tended.

CHIMES...soft. A lullaby and a soothing impersonal VOICE.

VOICE:

Sleep time...go to sleep.

Sleeping time, little ones.

As they exit Nursery...Logan stops and takes one final look

backward.

FRANCIS:

You need a lift. Let's go

to Arcade and celebrate...

(teasing tone)

your alert successor...Logan-6.

LOGAN:

Has anyone ever broken in to

where the babies are?

FRANCIS:

(putting a card key into a door

which opens soundlessly)

Not in my time...

They move through the door which closes.

20EXT. - MAZE STATION - NIGHT

They are now on a kind of enclosed platform with widely spaced

doorways, each glowing faintly. They pause, waiting.

FRANCIS (peering

at Logan curiously)

Why?

LOGAN:

just wondered...what happens?

FRANCIS (shrugs)

Dunno...flameout maybe. Whatever

happens, you can bet it's final.

But who would want to find out?

One of the doorways brightens and the word ARCADE _ appears on it.

The two men move to the spot as a maze-car stops. They enter it

through the doorway which dims behind them as the maze-car WHOOSHES

softly off into a kind of twilight.

21INT. - MAZE-CAR - LOGAN AND FRANCIS

The door slides shut. They sink into seat forms which yield to them.

They move off.

22EXT. - MAZE- CAR

Moving through the city at terrific speed. Giving us glimpses of the

city as it goes. slowing finally as we see:

23THE CITY - FEATURING ARCADE
