Well guys, I have buckled to pressure ( all be it, my own!) and booked a ticket for Alien Day this coming Wednesday. I'm old enough to have seen several of the Alien films at the cinema, Alien 3 upwards, however I have never seen the original on the big screen. Whilst I am uber excited to see the 15 min clip of AC, my excitement levels for seeing Alien on the big screen are through the roof! I've never been to the cinema on my own so this in itself is going to be experience. I'll update on Thursday and I promise no spoilers ( from the 15 min clip ) :-)
you people lucky enough to be in a city with Alien Day tickets make me sick! I'm in a little ol' town here in Alabama (Birmingham) and we have ZERO offerings nearby. Pfft!
SL - I Really feel for you
Rob - T minus 24 hours and my freshly ironed WY t shirt will be donned, I've managed to coax my sci-fi buddy to come along
To see the original on the Big Screen again will be something to behold
No doubt the Airshaft scene will still scare the sh*t out of me 30 plus years later...
Yep, tight lipped on the 15 mins
We're in CT and Alien Day isn't in any theatres in the entire state. Even the Regal theatres. We'd have to go to NYC on the train for it which would be fine except paying a babysitter to watch our 2 year old for 9 odd hours would be a lot of cash. Sucks. I would have loved to see the first Alien in the theatre.
CT - I feel your pain, I've had to juggle child issues to make it happen
I was far to young to see it in 79
My first viewing was about 85 on VHS
I grabbed the Directors cut on the big screen about 15 years back
Are they supposed to show the new footage on the alienuniverse.com site, or is it only available in the theaters during the screenings?
PSA to those going to the Alien Day event: PM me any spoilers about the 15 minute goodies.
GT I'm with you on that one, that scene is still the one that gives me the ****s and to see it on the big screen..... wow CANNOT wait.. Ive been clock watching since 9.00am
PSA if you want any spoilers rs from the 15 min AC clip, I'm more than happy to drop you a line tomorrow
Hope you enjoy the day ;)
I never bothered because the 3 people i would be going to Alien Covenant with, 2 would not be able to had made the Alien Day and so i was in a dilemma of booking the tickets for two but then find out on the 11th the other two would not be able to attend as no tickets left.
So we are going midnight on the 11th ;)
But i am having my own Alien Day minus the 15 minutes footage and interviews lol

Pretty Bummed about not seeing it tomorrow lol
As i did find a Cinema about 20 miles away that had tickets for 27th for the Full Movie, so Website claimed i even went to book up and ordered 4 tickets but never checked out as i would be getting a friend to book and give him my money.
But when he went to book after (8 hours after i informed him) the page was replaced by No Tickets for this Movie available yet.
Rang Cinema and the person who we spoke to never heard of the Alien Covenant event they said it comes out 19th... (which is wrong as its the 12th lol).
They did have Alien Day Tickets though... but i would have used a more local Cinema.... I wonder if this 27th AC Preview showing for £12 was a Website mistake lol
