“Get away from her, you bitch!”
Join us at the Rio Theatre for a Double Creature Feature screening of one of our all-time favourite franchises! We’re going into deep space with Ridley Scott‘s iconic 1979 ALIEN (The Director’s Cut) followed by James Cameron’s 1986 sequel, ALIENS.
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.
In this sequel to Scott’s game-changing work of sci-fi, Lt. Ripley’s (Weaver) shuttle is found by a deep space salvage team after floating in space for 57 years,. Upon arriving at LV-426, the marines find only one survivor, a nine year old girl named Newt (Carrie Henn). But even these battle-hardened marines with all the latest weaponry are no match for the hundreds of aliens that have invaded the colony.
“While Alien was a marvel of slow-building, atmospheric tension, Aliens packs a much more visceral punch, and features a typically strong performance from Sigourney Weaver.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
“Beyond dispute, however, is the film’s timeless worth as a cathartic work, especially in terms of its accidentally commentary on the sexism of the corporate structure.” (Salon.com)
“Scene to scene, encounter to encounter, its tension builds unrelentingly. So, fasten your seat belts. It`s a blast.” (Chicago Tribune)
