BladeRunner Double Bill @ Bem Mozi March 28th

“It’s too bad she won’t live but then again, who does?” Photo: TheBBunny.

The original, Blade Runner was released in 1982. I remember watching it at nine years old, Batty & Pris were utterly terrifying. To this day, Blade Runner is still one of my favourite movies. The film was a nightmarish vision of the future that thankfully did not come true. BR2049 is also a cracking wee watch. This double bill at Bem Mozi promises to be a wonderful experience, whether you dream of Electric Sheep or not.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade @ Erzsébet tér & Akvárium – March 22nd

A decade since the Irish first took to Budapest’s streets for their annual celebration, The Paddy’s Day Parade is always one of the cities biggest events of the year. March through the capital with your pals & then head to Akvárium for some brilliant Irish music. Not to be missed.
