“In space, no one can hear you scream.”
As one of – if not the – greatest action heroines to ever hit the silver screen, Sigourney Weaver’s unstoppable Ellen Ripley kicks all the asses and takes all the names throughout one of the most iconic sci-fi action franchises films of all time. Join us on Saturday, July 20 for back-to-back screenings of both Ridley Scott‘s ALIEN and James Cameron‘s ALIENS, as part of our nod to the 50th Anniversary of the lunar landing (Saturday, July 20.) Our chests are literally bursting with excitement! We thought it fitting to celebrate cinema that captures and is inspired by the human desire to learn about and explore space, an infinite marvel another fictional space Captain described so aptly as, “the final frontier.”
In this modern horror classic set in deep space, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules halfway through their journey home to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. The terror begins when the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship. An organism from inside an egg leaps out and attaches itself to one of the crew, causing him to fall into a coma…. Also starring Tom Skerritt, John Hurt, Ian Holm, Harry Dean Stanton, and Veronica Cartwright.
“The first part of the movie is essentially Marx in space, and the second part of the movie is Darwin in space.” (The Stranger)
“Seen again a quarter-century later, we marvel at how the filmmaker generates so much tension and sweat with a bare minimum of moving parts.” (Globe and Mail)
