Alien - 40th Anniversary Screening

20 September

Event cost$12/$10

It’s been 40 years since the USCSS Nostromo and its crew landed on LV-426, and audiences were introduced to Sigourney Weaver’s Warrant Officer Ellen Ripley.

Alien was a game changer for the sci-fi genre. Ridley Scott’s masterful pacing and the claustrophobic sense of dread and fear remain impactful today. The film still intrigues, horrifies and entertains in equal measures.

HR Giger’s designs for the Facehugger, Chestburster and Xenomorph creatures are as terrifying as they are iconic.

A masterpiece to see on the big screen, we are thrilled to present it on 35mm film.

'After 40 years, this sci-fi horror masterpiece still feels lethally contemporary' – The Guardian
