Outdoor Summer Movie - sci-fi horror classic, "Alien"

Hi guys,

 

It's time for outdoor Summer movies!  Let's head to Valentino Park in Red Hook to see, Ridley Scott's 1979 classic, "Alien".  From Rotten Tomatoes: "A close encounter of the third kind becomes a Jaws-style nightmare when an alien invades a spacecraft in Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror classic."

 

The movie's famous tagline was, "In space, no one can hear you scream."

 

From the director of "Blade Runner," "Gladiator," the 1984 Apple Commercial, the now-in-theaters, "Prometheus," and "Thelma & Louise," (for which he received an Oscar nomination), "Alien," was the movie that put Ridley Scott on the map.  It also made Sigourney Weaver a star as she portrayed one of the first female action heroes.  The movie starts slow as it builds up a feeling of dread and claustrophobia (in the characters AND the audience).

 

You can see a trailer for the movie here:  http://redhookflicks.com/movie_schedule/

Here's is the trailer for the Director's Cut (this trailer is arguably scarier):  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eIpvZsEky4

 

Directions are here:  http://redhookflicks.com/location/ (Though, technically, this is not in either Park Slope or Carroll Gardens, both neighborhoods can get to Red Hook using the B61 bus.)

 

There will be gourmet popcorn for $1 a bag and some Red Hook restaurants selling food, as well (specific will be available as we get closer to the date).  If people are interested, we will grab a drink afterwards at Botanica or Sunny's.

 

If you've never seen, "Alien," this is a great opportunity to see it.  If you've seen it before like I have, it's an excellent opportunity to get the pants scared off you, again, and to scream with an audience!

 

The cost of the movie is free.  If you would like to donate $1.00 in person to help me defray the $19/month that Meetup charges me to be the organizer, that would be greatly appreciated.

 

I hope to see you at the movies!

 

Best,

Danielle
