Description

“Memory: The Origins of Alien” Fan Premiere and Q&A
TCL Chinese Theatre at Theatre Box
Friday, July 19th, from 10:00 pm to 12:00 am

Come see the critically-acclaimed documentary “Memory: The Origins of Alien” followed by a special Q&A with the film’s director Alexandre O. Philippe (“The People vs. George Lucas,” “Doc of the Dead”). The feature-length film, which premiered to rave reviews in the Midnight Section at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, unearths the largely untold origin story behind Ridley Scott’s cinematic masterpiece, and reveals a treasure trove of never-before-seen materials from the archives of “Alien” creators Dan O’Bannon and H.R. Giger, including original story notes, rejected designs and storyboards, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, and O’Bannon’s original 29 page script from 1971, titled Memory. The documentary also takes fans on an exploration of the mythical underpinnings of “Alien” and dedicates focus on the film’s iconic “Chestburster” scene. “Memory: The Origins of Alien” screening and Q&A moderated by Clarke Wolfe, and hosted by Legion M and Screen Media is a must-see SDCC event for “Alien” fans celebrating the epic horror/Sci-Fi film’s 40th anniversary.

Disclaimer: This screening will take place over three screens. At this time, we are unsure if we will be able to livestream the Q&A to all screens.

PLEASE NOTE: Registration does not guarantee entry. Entry and seating are first-come, first-serve. Please arrive early.
