Celebrating its 35th anniversary this year and hosted on World Alien Day (April 26th commemorating the brave souls on colony LV-426), SWIFF is screening James Cameron’s indominable 1986 sci-fi epic, Aliens, on the big screen for a one-night only special event.

Before we take off and nuke the site from orbit, film buffs and sci-fi nerds (hi!) can test their mettle with a team trivia session, with both prizes and bragging rights to be won. Hosted by Simon Foster, Festival Director of the Sydney Science Fiction Film Festival!

Aliens, the sequel to Ridley Scott’s singular namesake, picks up from its prequel with merchant crew-woman Ellen Ripley drifting through space in hypersleep on a derelict spacecraft. Found by a space salvage crew, Ripley reacclimatises to find out she’s been asleep for over 50 years. Out of necessity and against her better judgement, Ripley joins a crew of battle-hardened space marines checking on an off-world colony whose comms transmitter has gone down. Things are not what they seem. Cue the ever-quotable one-liners.

Winner of Oscars for both the immersive sound design and the detailed visual effects (by Stan Winston’s studio), you may have seen Aliens many times over the years – but never with a throng of raging fans at SWIFF.
