Logan's Run -- Carrousel scene

The carousel scene from the 1976 film Logan's in the 23rd century, the remnants of human civilization live in a sealed domed city, a utopia run by a computer that takes care of all aspects of their life, including reproduction. The citizens live a mostly hedonistic lifestyle but have been told that in order to maintain the city, every resident must undergo the ritual of Carrousel [sic] at the age of 30, where they are vaporized but with the promise of being Renewed. To track this, the humans are implanted at birth with a Lifeclock crystal in the palm of their hand that changes colors as they approach their Last Day. To maintain order, the computer has assigned several humans as Sandmen (policemen), who chase after and terminate Runners (those that try to leave the city in order to escape Carrousel).
