They may not hear you scream in space, but people will hear you scream when you experience ALIEN at Nitehawk.
Slow, pulsating, and terrifying, Ridley Scott’s Alien is the pinnacle science fiction film. It features the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo who are woken up from their cyro-sleep to answer a distress call from an alien vessel. When a couple crew members come back from investigating, they bring with them an alien life form with extraordinary adaptability. Within their close quarters, the crew battles against the mother of all aliens but who will survive? Featuring the iconic creature and environmental design by H.R. Gieger and Sigourney Weaver in the role that would define women in action film, Alien is the ultimate fight in space.
Part of Nitehawk’s November SCI-FIGHTERS midnite series.
