Ridley Scott’s Alien is turning 40 and the Mini Microcinema is celebrating with a special screening.

As part of the cinema’s The Anniversary Show monthly fundraiser marking historical film milestones throughout 2019, these ticketed events include themed drinks and snacks and help support the mission of the Mini.

On their way back to Earth, the crew of the commercial space ship Nostromo gets a distress signal from a nearby moon, prompting their computer to wake them from stasis to investigate.

They do. Things don’t go well: faces get sucked, chests explode, etc.

7 p.m. doors; 7:30 p.m. show Sunday, May 19. $25. The Mini Microcinema, 1329 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, alien40th.eventbrite.com.
