Grab a seat in the cool, dark Fox Tucson Theatre on Saturday, July 18 and be transported aboard the Nostromo when the historic venue hosts a special screening of 1979 sci-fi horror thriller classic Alien. Ridley Scott's penchant for suspense combined with designer and artist HR Giger's industrial gothic aesthetic creates a visually-stunning and tense flick that, through the use of real special effects and not crummy CGI, stands the test of time over 35 years later. Plus, Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is a total badass.

However, that's not the only sci-fi flick showing at the beautifully restored '30s-era movie house. E.T., The Matrix and Close Encounters of the Third Kind will all be projected in 35mm on the big screen on July 25, Aug. 1 and Aug. 15, respectively.

All screenings begin at 7:30 p.m. and are $7 for entry. For tickets and more information, visit the Fox Tucson Theatre website.

And, without further ado, here's Ripley being totally rad:
