“What’s the matter? The food ain’t that bad, baby!”
During its return to the earth, the spaceship Nostromo intercepts a distress signal from a distant planet. When a 3-member team of crew discovers a chamber containing thousands of eggs on the planet, a creature inside one of the eggs attacks an explorer.

Alien (Screening the Directors Cut) – 16:00 
“Get away from her, you BITCH!”
Ripley’s lifepod is found by a salvage crew over 50 years later, the terra-formers are on the very planet they found the alien species. When the company sends a family of colonists out to investigate her story—all contact is lost with the planet and colonists. They enlist Ripley and the colonial marines to return and search for answers.

Alien 3 (30th Anniversary Screening) – 18:45 
“Let me see if I have this correct, Lieutenant – it’s an 8-foot creature of some kind with acid for blood, and it arrived on your spaceship. It kills on sight, and is generally unpleasant.”
We present the rarely seen Work Print, which reveals how Fincher originally intended the film to be before the studio got their hands on it. If you haven’t seen this version, it’s a revelation!

Alien Resurrection- 21:15 
“Earth, man. What a shithole.”
Two hundred years after Lt. Ripley died, a group of scientists clone her, hoping to breed the ultimate weapon. But the new Ripley is full of surprises … as are the new aliens. Ripley must team with a band of smugglers to keep the creatures from reaching Earth.
