Aliens live with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, September 23 & 24, Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Dublin / Aliens at T13 Belfast, September 24.

THE 30th anniversary celebrations for James Cameron's much loved sci-fi action epic Aliens continue with this special two night event in Dublin.

Audiences will experience the classic 1986 film on a vast HD screen as James Horner's pounding Academy Award nominated score is reproduced live courtesy of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

If you don't fancy trekking all the way to Dublin to get your celebratory big screen fix of xenomorph-laden jollies, T13 in Belfast are also screening Aliens next month as part of a special event with Belfast Film Festival.

The warehouse based skate facility promise to "set design the space to mimic the film's sci-fi industrial design".

Expect plenty of mesh walkways, sculpted metal bulkheads and vented steam, plus an abundance of mysterious, pulsating eggs just waiting for someone to wander to close to them.
