What are your memories of your first time watching an Alien movie?

Mine was actually seven years ago, when I was 24. My husband and I had just moved to a new town, the town where his best friend from college lived along with his new wife.
We all decided to have a movie night, and since my husband's best friend was a huge horror buff, and my husband and I huge Sci-Fi buffs, we thought Alien would be a cool pick.
We spread out a huge blanket on the floor and put cushions behind our backs so we could stretch out.
My husband's best friend's wife had just moved from India and she had grown up super sheltered, so at the beginning of the movie she kept asking all these questions like if the U.S. really has mining missions in space (She's up to speed now, and she's a brilliant software engineer).
I remember during one suspenseful part there was water or slime trickling from somewhere, she said "Haha, the monster is doing shu-shu."(pissing) which we all thought was pretty funny because it was pretty suspenseful and we needed some comic relief!
I had never seen a movie quite like that, so firmly grounded in both the sci-fi and horror genres. We had such a great time, and it was one of my first memories with that couple who wound up being our friends we hang out with most often.
We had so much fun, we decided to watch Aliens the following weekend.
What about you guys?
