A LOGAN'S RUN Landmark Sees Last Day

Merrick here...
This story is about the death of a place. It was a real place, although most assume it was a set and don't know it actually existed...which makes its passing all that much more tragic, I suppose. If you're a good Geek (if you're reading this article, I can only assume that you are), you already know what this place looked like because you've seen the 1976 film LOGAN'S RUN (despite its imperfections and deviations from source material, it's still one of my very favorite movies). This is the place I'm specifically referring to:
It's "The Great Hall", through which throngs of naive city dwellers passed on the way to exalt the false promise of Carousel.
It's where Sandman Logan 5 and best friend Francis 7 sadistically stalked a "Runner" -- not realizing that Logan would soon become the prey.
It's where jetpacked clean-up crews drifted quietly down to dissolve the remains of a man whose only crime was wanting to live a bit longer.

In the REAL world, The Great Hall looked like this:
It was located in the Dallas Apparel Mart; for 4 decades it was host to a variety of functions.
About a year ago, The Powers That Be started tearing it down...

...and this is what it looks like today.

LOGAN'S RUN was something of a coming of age film for me. It's the first time I saw a "hero" do some very mean things; it's the first time I saw titties...and I really liked 'em. The action sequence in "The Great Hall" is the first "grown-up" big-screen chase I can recall. This place has meaning to me; it's a huge part of my Geekiness. I'm guessing more than a few readers might feel the same we wanted to pass this along, and let you know it is now gone. We don't write about places too often here on AICN, but maybe we should. Whether it be The Great Hall, Devil's Tower, Ralphie Parker's house in Cleveland, or anywhere in between...a location can sometimes be every bit as memorable as the people who populate it. There's no harm in recognizing that. I'd like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Dicktate and The Pirate for their invaluable assistance assembling this piece. If you're a fan of the movie, I highly recommend you checking out THIS EXCELLENT SITE -- tons of material there about the making of the film.

    Logan's Run was a terrible movie.

    by jimmy_009

    Frankly it's unwatchable, like most sci-fi movies of it's time. Just another good idea for a movie done in by 70's cheese.

    Speaking of Jenny AGUTTER...

    by Tal111

    years back a friend of mine was bragging that he had ordered the uncut version of the movie on film. For weeks we heard it was on the way. Finally we went to his house to view it and when THAT scene (you know the one) came up the film jumped and we were on the next scene. We asked "what happened to the nude scene?". Our friend said- "I the projector and left it running too long on the image and the film melted". I didn't ask what he was doing.

    Logan's Run Locations

    by NubtheSquirrel

    At least the water gardens are alive and well over here in Fort Worth. I just saw the movie about a year ago and went out of my way to see the gardens. The great hall, I didn't know how to get there but the water gardens are within walking distance from where I work and I go there whenecver possible. It's a great shooting location. That's for sure...

    Agreed Places Help Make A Movie

    by Alice Cooper Stalker

    I agree with Merrick. Places are important. I work near the high school used in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I've drive over there are parked in the parking lot right were Ferris picked up Sloan disguised as Sloan's father. I looked over at the doorway right were Mr. Rooney and Sloan stood and had their little 'chat' before Sloan got picked up.

    Never underestimate the power of film locations!

    by RenoNevada2000

    What film buff visiting the Philly Art Museum can resist the urge to run up the steps like Stallone did in ROCKY? Who doesn't walk by a certain firehouse in Tribecca in Manhattan and not expect to see Ecto-1 come screaming out? I've visited the HOUSE ON 92nd STREET (located on 93rd street oddly enough) and imagined Nazi spies coming in and out. I have stood on the street in front of Holly Golightly's townhouse apartment and imagined Mickey Rooney's (albeit racist) Japanese accented yelling coming from inside. I have traced Cary Grant's path through the Plaza Hotel in NORTH BY NORTHWEST and sat where he sat in the Oak Room. I have walked by the Oscorp building and had a drink and a hamburger in the bar from LOST WEEKEND. I've walked the same hallways that Eddie Murphy walked in THE DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN and watched THE BLOB in the exact same theater featured in the movie. I live only two miles away from the site where a seated President was captured on film for the first time. Films are a part of our culture and heritage and the locations that they're shot at are just as important.

    by Zardoz

    It’s a Bummer

    by Evil Chicken

    and poignant; time waits for no man. Does anyone remember when Pinewood Studios burned and so many of the James Bond sets were lost? There is a sadness at it’s passing. History was ending. I cut my geek teeth on ‘Logan’s Run’ too and thought it was wonderful. As it stands I’m not usually a fan of remakes but I can’t wait to see what Bryan Singer does with ‘Logan’s Run.’ Mr. Singer, if you’re out there, Michael York would be perfect as Ballard (The Old Man). Good article – thanks.

    "Logan's Run" was my "Star Wars"...

    by JimmyJoe RedSky

    ... before i saw star wars - and before logans run it was planet of the apes (the franchise) - i spotted 2 deleted scenes in that vintage preview - that convex mirror with 2 balls floating in it and that shot of francis blasting a runner in front of a crowd and knocking him into a fountain - this movie deserves a decent dvd release - the old one is very bare bones and dated - i always wanted a sandmans gun (i think they were called homers - as indicated in the logans run tv series - remember that?) - very cool movie weapon - the blue flames out the barrel was an awesome touch - the matte paintings in this movie are awesome too - very effective use of the technique - i was so into this movie as a kid that every time id be at a shopping mall or department store (back then) id secretly pretend i was in the domed city - i even combed my hair like michael york - memories like that make me miss having hair - this movie is great - it is one of (if not THE) last great dystopian future fantasies of the seventies - back when that sub genre ruled - its a pop version of zardoz - i hope bryan singer makes a killer remake

    I'm with you Merrick. This film has great memories for me also. It was the first PG movie I was allowed to go see by myself. At ten years old, that was a pretty big deal. It was a double feature with FutureWorld (love Peter Fonda in that flick). Very sad. I always wanted to go there myself just to say I'd been there. Glad the Water Gardens are still there. Maybe I'll go there someday.

I still have my Logan's Run PRESSBOOK they sold at the snackbar and free Life Clock crystal sticker they gave out at the theater- going to the movies was a big deal in the 70's for these EVENT pictures. The paperback book made me hornier than the movie did as a teen ( well just thinking about Jenny will do that to a man lol). Singer will have to do a "R" rated version to stay true to the novel.

    Film is the ultimate library. Ten years ago, my parents bought a home built in 1935. We found a shitload of 16mm home movies in the basement. One night, I set up a screen in the den, and started watching. Imagine the effect, when I started viewing one movie filmed in the same room I was in. Literally, the camera was pointed towards a wall, the same wall where my screen was set up. There were people talking, and waving at the camera. It was a damn time warp. Totally Twilight Zone. We were in the same room. Damn, I love film.

    by Uncapie

    I did many similar things. I was actually inside No. 6's apartment from "The Prisoner" before he's taken to "The Village," Been at the same stairs in Chicago where they filmed "The Untouchables" shootout(Its a lot smaller in person.), at three locations where the original 1956 "Invasion Of the Body Snatchers" was filmed(Try running down that back hill without breaking your neck when Kevin McCarthy is being chased by the townspeople where Bronson Cave is!)was on the original Pacific Ocean Park Amusement Park where the original finale of the tv series, "The Fugitive" took place before most of it fell into the ocean and later was torn down, watched "The Right Stuff" sitting across from Chuck Yeager and Gordon Cooper, watching them watch the actors portray them on the screen and a ton of other stuff. Man, to have actually been in the same theater where the original "Blob" was shown is great! Its moments like these being there most of us enjoy and will always remember.

    and now it's gone :( Alas, Dallas once more confirms the impression that history is just one more commodity on sale. I still remember when the plan for making downtown a bit less unbearable (there's no way to make it "beautiful" without several truckloads of explosives) featured a fountain right where the Kennedy memorial is located... More than once they were all too eager to destroy the Fair Park art deco ensemble to "renovate" the Cotton Bowl. Alas, in this city, there probably is nothing that's not for sale and fit to be demolished if something else promises more greenbacks. That's all this city cares about.

    Bryan Singer would frak LOGAN'S RUN up!

    by spud mcspud

    I read in some UK film mag that Bryan Singer has dropped LOGAN'S RUN from his schedule while he works on SUPERMAN RETURNS AGAIN (or whatever). Good. When the third act of a $200 million movie involves James Marsden piloting a light aircraft away from a big wave, with the hero unconscious in the back seat, you officially have no talent. And tell it like it is - X-MEN 3 had more action than 1 & 2 combined. Ratner sucks, but not to the depths that Singer does. He managed to get Patrick Stewart to stop being Picard long enough to be... well, Picard in a wheelchair. Way to direct, Singer. LOGAN'S RUN should be done by Paul Greengrass or Zack Snyder. That is all.

    Bad location for a restaurant I guess

    by Wingnut1A

    When I went to see Clerks 2 it happened to be at the theatre nearest to the location that was used for the Mooby's restaurant. It was an old Burger King in Buena Park, CA. After we saw the movie, my friend and I went there for a burger and the whole restaurant was gone. Just a vacant lot remained. Not a huge deal, but if they were gonna tear the place down anyway, they should have at least blown it up for the movie or something. =)

    At least we still have the Water Gardens over here in Fort Worth, but there's talk they may not be around much longer either.

    Real estate developers GOTTA EAT!

    Sorry but I have to throw in the gratuitous cliche at least once. I never saw Logan's run and, judging from the trailer, never will. Projects as much intrigue and excitement as Ben Stein delivering a euology.

    If you are ever there, check out the private dining room in the Blackstone Hotel - its where they filmed the scene from untouchables where deniro baseball bats the guys head. Also the train station where they did the steps and pram thing from balteship potemkin

    Logan's Run

    by Black Satin 2

    I remember seeing Logan't Run when it came on TV in 1977. They were promoting Farah Fawcett Majors and her role was actually very small. Jenny Agutter was very beautiful in a underscored way with her short skirt and the jewelry around her neck. But looking at it much later, I noticed that the Francis character showed some homosexual instincts particularly in the way he was ready to kill Jessica (Jenny Agutter's character) to keep Logan for himself. Whoo Boy! Sexual Politics at that day and age.
