Alien

Scott 1979

It was all going so smoothly – the snow melted enough for us to get the stuff there, perfect set-up, sofas, cosy room. Then the electricity gave out because we’d plugged in too many heaters.

Emergency fix with an extension cable from another room made the projector throw a wobbly. So big thanks to everyone who stuck with us in the cold with the most awful image quality! The sound was great, though, and the baby-alien-bursting-from-john-hurt birthday cake (for Alison) made up for it. Even with a dodgy picture, we were still jumping when the alien appeared and feeling the tension as Ripley tried to escape with her life. Goes to show there’s more to cinema than what your eyes see…
