Avon Theatre Film Center Hosts \Cult Classics: Alien

12/23/2014

272 Bedford St., Stamford, CT 06901. Phone: 203-967-3660.

Avon Theatre Film Center hosts Cult Classics:  Alien on Tuesday,  December 23, 2014 -8:30PM. Directed By: Ridley Scott Starring: Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, John Hurt.   "In space, no one can hear you scream." A close encounter of the third kind becomes a Jaws-style nightmare when an alien invades a spacecraft in Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror classic. On the way home from a mission for the Company, the Nostromo's crew is woken up from hibernation by the ship's Mother computer to answer a distress signal from a nearby planet. Capt. Dallas's (Tom Skerritt) rescue team discovers a bizarre pod field, but things get even stranger when a face-hugging creature bursts out of a pod and attaches itself to Kane (John Hurt). Over the objections of Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), science officer Ash (Ian Holm) lets Kane back on the ship. The acid-blooded incubus detaches itself from an apparently recovered Kane, but an alien erupts from Kane's stomach and escapes.
