Alien at Midnight

The so-called “Director’s Cut” of the 1979 monster movie classic – about a nearly unstoppable alien terrorizing the crew of a merchant vessel in space – screens at midnight on Friday, January 9 in the Nuart Theatre – 11272 Santa Monica Blvd (just west of 405 Freeway) West Los Angeles, CA 90025. The director’s cut reinserts the famous deleted scene in which Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) discovers Captain Dallas (Tom Skerrit) cocooned by the alien and mutating into one of its eggs. In order to keep the pace fast, other scenes have been deleted to make room for the new footage. Call (310) 478-6379 for more information, or check out the official website.
