Cult film Alien to receive special screening at Little Theatre Picture House in MarchPosted on: 22 Feb 2019
'In space, no one can hear you scream.' So ominously stated the tagline for Ridley Scott's terrifying film Alien, celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019 and getting a special celebratory (and heart-stoppingly frightening) screening at Little Theatre Picture House in Bath on Monday 4th March 2019.
The sci-fi horror, now regarded as an undisputed classic, follows the crew of the Nostromo who must fight for their lives after answering an SOS call from another planet only to encounter the deadly, acid-for-blood alien of the title.
Starring Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto, it remains a benchmark of the genre, filled with goosebump-inducing scenes of terror and horror and several of the most iconic, bloodcurdling moments every committed to celluloid.
Claustrophobic, terrifying and often unbearably tense, 40 years on Alien still has lost none of its power to shock, scare and gruesomely entertain.
The screening starts at 8.30pm. Tickets cost £11.90 and can be booked here. Little Theatre Picture House is located at St Michael's Place, Bath, BA1 1SG.
