Should have upgraded the print. If they offer a 4K version for purchase, then use that remastered version for the big screen.

Sound was terrible at the theater... they said they knew the sound wasn't working right, but did not want to re-boot.

Metacritic

100

Just as Ripley is the female action hero against whom all others are judged, so the alien itself, brilliantly conceived by HR Giger and, equally brilliantly, concealed by Scott and kept in shadow for much of the film, is one of the most terrifying monsters in cinema history.
