Alien – Metro Cinema Staff Pics - Erica

In Ridley Scott’s Alien, the commercial vessel Nostromo receives a distress call from an unexplored planet. After searching for survivors, the crew heads home only to realize that a deadly bioform has joined them.

“In space, no one can hear you scream” were the words that echoed through Front of House manager Erica’s head, as she sat down to watchAlien for the first time with her dad. She was young, maybe 7 or 8, but mature for her age, or so her parents said. The tag line is what piqued her interest. “Are you sure you want to watch this?” Dad asked. “I wanna see the alien!” replied young Erica. The movie played and ended. Starry-eyed and completely fascinated, young Erica dreamt of having an Alien as a pet. Unfortunately the dream never came true... but seeing Alien on the big screen at the Garneau Theatre is a great alternative.
