Alien: 9 p.m. – 10:57 p.m.
Commercial space tug Nostromo and its crew – seven men and women – are on a return trip to Earth with an important cargo of ore. But during a forced stop on a desert planet, Executive Officer Kane is attacked by an unknown form of life, an arachnid chokes his face. Once the onboard doctor removes the specimen off of his face, the crew is happy again and dines all together. Until Kane has seizures and his abdomen is ripped off by a living strange foreign body escaping in the vessel corridors…

Aliens: 11:30 p.m. – 1:47 a.m.
In stasis in a shuttle for 57 years, Ellen Ripley is finally rescued by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation. Despite her relationship with the incident that happened on the Nostromo, the Marines are skeptical of her claims that alien creatures live on the LV-426 planet where her crew landed… a planet where several colonial families have been sent for a mission of terraforming. After the disappearance of the later, Ripley decides to go with a squad of Marines in their rescue mission and face off the beast once again.

Alien 3: 2:15 a.m. – 4:06 a.m.
Sole survivor of a massacre on a far-away planet, Ripley has crashed on Fiorina 161 a forgotten planet in the universe, brushed by powerful winds. A community including about twenty men lives there. Rapists, murderers, infanticidal murderers, those are the most dangerous common criminals in the universe. Ripley’s crash will have them face a danger even bigger than them.

Alien: Resurrection: 4:30 a.m. – 6:19 a.m.
Two hundred years after Officer Ripley’s death, a team of scientists resuscitates the young woman using DNA from her body and DNA from an Alien. The nightmare is back. Aboard the Auriga station, Ripley gives birth to a son that is immediately taken away from her. Locked in a cell, she tries to bond with her far-away human past. Soon, another ship joins the Auriga.
