Alien (Director's Cut)

A few months ago, the British Film Institute voted Vertigo Number One in their new 50 Greatest Films Of All Time. They were wrong. The best film of all time is Ridley Scott’s blockbuster classic Alien. You don’t have to be a sci-fi fan or a horror fan to love Alien, for it’s impossible to not recognize what a masterpiece of suspense and tension it is. The bastard child of 2001: A Space Odyssey and the starbound scarefests of the ‘50s, Alien is a perfectly cast, perfectly designed (in part by Swiss nutter H.R. Giger, who delivered the most terrifying movie monster of all time) and perfectly executed deep-space shocker that has inspired endless imitations and sequels but has never, more than three decades after its release, been matched — but you don’t need us to tell you that. You know and love Alien, so why not suit up in your grimiest space-trucker jumpsuit and join us for a rare screening of the 2003 director’s cut? In space, no one can hear you scream — again!
Dir. Ridley Scott, 1979, 35mm, 116 min.
