Sci-Fi Cityscapes #6: New Chicago, circa 2491 AD (Buck Rogers in the 25th Century;1979 - 1981)

    I always thought that the Inner City/New Chicago was a fascinating setting for both the 1979 film and first season of the series. It seemed to be influenced by the City of Domes of the 1976 film and 1977-78 Logan's Run series.


  2. These scenes set in New Chicago are some of the best and most convincing futuristic cities ever committed to film, in my humble opinion. The city designs are wonderful and the addition of moving vehicles and integration with live action are absolutely first rate. There's a lovely shot, not shown here, of a vehicle zooming into the distance at ground level that's also very effective.
