Logan’s Run – Runs Into Theaters

Logan's Run
June 23, 1976
Based on William F. Nolan’s book of the same name, the dystopian sci-fi flick, Logan’s Run, premiered on this day in 1976. In this universe, the population is controlled by killing off citizens when they reach the ripe old age of 30, hence, the reason why Logan is running. The movie starred Michael York, Jenny Agutter and Farrah Fawcett, who MGM promoted heavily even though she only had a bit part in the film. Logan’s Run was nominated for two Academy Awards and won for a special award for its visual effects. The movie also won six Saturn Awards including Best Science Fiction Film. The following year, a short-lived TV show based on the movie aired on CBS.
