Logan’s Run (1976)

Starring Michael York as Logan 5 and Jenny Agutter as Jessica 6. Logan’s Run depicts a utopian, hedonistic future society that hides a dark secret — everyone over the age of 30 is killed to maintain a stable population size.

The production design, costumes and effects are beautiful. Logan’s Run was the first movie to use real holograms. The “dating app” called “The Circuit” the characters use is eerily like a pre-digital Tinder.
