UNITED KINGDOM, United States | 116 minutes | 1979
A spaceship visits a planet where it should never have stopped. Alone with the terrors of deep space, facing a murderous xenomorph that patiently lies in wait for its prey, five astronauts soon find themselves in a battle for survival. A classic among classics, this proto-feminist film paved the way for a genre cinema renaissance, and remains a major source of inspiration. Alien is a unique work of art (see Memory: The Origins of Alien, also being screened this year), and it is turning 40 this year. A superb opportunity to see a truly great film on the big screen (the rightful place for cult-film worship), in a restored print.
