2017 marks the 30th Anniversary of the cult sci-fi action classic Predator, to celebrate this we'll be putting it head-to-head in a double-bill screening with another of the most iconic creatures from another world - Alien.
We start the evening in deep space, as we follow the crew of the commercial starship the Nostromo, as they are awakened from cryo-sleep halfway through their journey home upon the discovery of a signal coming from a nearby planet. When they investigate, they find the ruin of a spacecraft, and discover more than anything they could have possibly imagined. Featuring iconic movie heroine Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), Alien is a landmark sci-fi horror.
We then head earthbound to a mission in the Latin American jungle, as we follow a military rescue unit searching for allies captured by guerrilla forces, who then find themselves hunted by a Predator from another world. With Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of his most iconic roles, the commandos find themselves in a fight to stay alive.
Hosted at the Abbeydale Picture House - Sheffield's Grade II listed 1920's picture palace cinema, always bringing a sense of occasion and along with a fully stocked up bar, this double-bill feature will provide out of this world Saturday evening entertainment...
Following our screenings of Bruce Lee's Enter The Dragon, our anniversary celebration of Evil Dead 2, and our sold-out double bill screening of The Thing and Big Trouble In Little China, we hope you'll join us again for our own Alien vs Predator event with an evening of cult sci-fi classics.
