neon circuit boards

Can't really remember any hype on release or whether it was ever shown in the cinemas , however I remember watching this movie on TV, and I loved it.


I had a TRON poster on my bedroom wall in 1982, but I never saw the film until years later, probably the mid-90s.

CGI's first bow

Helston's Flora cinema.

Software Engineer Hero!

1982 - in the oedeon cinema at Aylesbury

End of line, Dillinger...

It would have been released when I was about 8 years old.
