30th Anniversary Double Feature: ALIEN & ALIENS

Synopsis:

Friday, October 9th – 8:00 PM

Double Feature:

30th Anniversary!

ALIEN, 1979, 20th Century Fox, 117 min.
From its cool, sinister textures to its (literally) stomach-churning special effects, director Ridley Scott’s ALIEN reinvented the monster-from-space movie as something mesmerizing, inescapable and strangely beautiful. It also introduced the American action heroine, in Sigourney Weaver’s tough-as-nails Ripley, and the H.R. Giger-designed Alien. With Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm, Veronica Cartwright.


ALIENS, 1986, 20th Century Fox, 137 min.
Seven years after Ridley Scott’s original ALIEN, director James Cameron reunites us with Ripley, the sole survivor, in this sinister, explosive WWII movie in space, about a platoon of U.S. Marines stranded on planet LV-426. Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley is darker and richer here -- haunted by alien nightmares, going face-to-face with her deepest fears. With Michael Biehn, Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen and Paul Reiser.
