This week at the Music Box, two of the greatest sci-fi/horror flicks of all time!
ALIEN (1979) - THE DIRECTOR'S CUT
New 35mm Print! DTS Sound!
Director Ridley Scott’s breakthough film, an immensely successful blend of horror and science fiction, is a classic in both genres and spawned a host of sequels and imitators. Starring Sigourney Weaver as warrant officer Ellen Ripley, ALIEN focuses on the crew of the space cargo ship Nostromo, which lands on a moribund planet in response to a faint SOS. Inside a crashed ship, the crew members come upon strange pods, one of which spews forth a repellently fleshy insectile creature that locks on to the face of the unlucky Kane (John Hurt).
“STILL THE BEST SCI-FI ACTION-HORROR FILM EVER MADE! Alien was that rare moment in Hollywood history when artistry and jump-out-of-your-seat thrills collided.” — Flavorpill
“4 STARS! Still vibrates with a dark and frightening intensity.” — Roger Ebert
“Never lost its ability to terrify… DON’T MISS THE CHANCE TO SEE IT ON THE BIG SCREEN!” — New York Magazine
