ALIEN Celebrates 40 With A Return To The Big Screen Via Fathom Events

I am looking forward to seeing this on the big screen. I was young when it first came out so did not get to see it in the cinema. It was only as an adult when the Directors Edition came out that I saw it in a cinema and that was about 12 years ago now.

“In Space No One Can Hear You Scream”:

Relive the Terror in Deep Space as 1979’s Sci-Fi Masterpiece Alien
Marks its 40th Anniversary by Returning to Movie Theaters

Nationwide for the TCM Big Screen Classics Series

  • WHAT: In the summer of 1979, moviegoers journeyed into deep space and met with unimaginable horror as they discovered director Ridley Scott’s science-fiction/horror masterpiece Alien. Working from a screenplay by Dan O’Bannon and a story by O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett, Scott created a film dripping in dread, one that upended audience expectations for a science-fiction film by combining a futuristic setting with extreme terror. Forty years later, Alien returns to more than 600 cinemas nationwide for three days only, with special commentary before and after the film from TCM Primetime Host Ben Mankiewicz.


Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Harry Dean Stanton, Veronica Cartwright, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto are the crew members of the Nostromo, which veers off course to explore a mysterious signal emanating from an unknown planet. When they unwittingly take an alien creature aboard the ship, they have no idea just how terrifying – and deadly – the ordeal will be.


Combining a remarkable visual style, including designs by H.R. Giger and Oscar®-winning visual effects, along with a disquieting score by Jerry Goldsmith, Alien has become a modern classic.
