Stuck for present ideas? Give the gift of sci-fi this Christmas

Still looking for something to get your friend/sibling/nice neighbourhood Vulcan this Christmas? Look no further. In February, Time Out will be returning to the Natural History Museum for another season of Movie Nights, this time showcasing sci-fi greats in the museum’s glorious Hintze Hall.

It’s a bucket list location and there are some sci-fi classics to pick from: ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial’ gets things underway on Feb 9, before ‘Alien’ (Feb 9) and ‘District 9’ (Feb 10) ramp up the scares and splats. The Oscar-winning thrills of ‘Gravity’ (Feb 10) will plunge the historical hall into the depths of space, with ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ (both Mar 2) and a pair of ‘Star Wars’ movies (‘Rogue One’ and ‘The Force Awakens’ on Mar 3) to round off the run in the same, spacey vein.

Tickets are onsale now at timeout.com/NHMmovies. Unless you’ve found a way to wrap an actual xenomorph, we’re willing to bet they’re the perfect pressie for the sci-fi buff in your life.

Movie Nights at the Natural History Museum runs on the weekends of Feb 9/10 and March 2/3.
