The crew of the merchant vessel Nostromo answers a distress call on an abandoned moon. There are no life forms on the surface to speak of, except for a field of eggs and a giant structure...An «old dark house» mystery updated for the jittery nerves and wounded psyche of the late 1970s, Ridley Scott's ALIEN is a masterpiece that must be experienced on the big screen.
Parasites everywhere, androids with bad intentions, and so much acid! Alien is bursting with science from beginning to terrifying end. Following the film, join scientists Kishore Hari and Jeffrey Silverman as they dissect the science of this sci-fi classic.
