Dir Ridley Scott, UK/US 1979, 2h01, Cert 15
Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, John Hurt, Ian Holm, Harry Dean Stanton.

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, screening in a new 40th anniversary restoration. 

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. Captain Dallas' 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 crewman Kane.

“After 40 years, this sci-fi horror masterpiece still feels lethally contemporary.” - The Guardian
