THEY SAY: “The ads for Aliens claim that this movie will frighten you as few movies have, and, for once, the ads don’t lie […] I have never seen a movie that maintains such a pitch of intensity for so long; it’s like being on some kind of hair-raising carnival ride that never stops. I don’t know how else to describe this: the movie made me feel bad. It filled me with feelings of unease and disquiet and anxiety. I walked outside and I didn’t want to talk to anyone. I was drained. I’m not sure Aliens is what we mean by entertainment. Yet I have to be accurate about this movie: It is a superb example of filmmaking craft. –  Roger Ebert, 1986

WE SAY: Few sequels have garnered such praise as Aliens, and it’s easy to see why. A relentless, nightmarish journey down endless dark tunnels, and yet it still finds room for the odd moment of perfectly pitched gallows humour. Definitely not for the faint-hearted, but also one you will definitely be glad to experience.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Our stewards reserve the right to refuse entry to those who they believe to be under the appropriate age for each film’s BBFC certification who cannot produce photographic ID. Refunds will not be issued if somebody who fails to produce ID is subsequently refused entry to the venue. Please bear in mind that the Caves are an intense environment and may not be suitable for younger children, even if the film is PG rated – parental discretion is advised.
  • Due to the cave’s status as a protected environment, no food is permitted into the venue. Drinks will only be permitted into the venue in plastic containers. Personal alcohol supplies may not be brought into the Caves; the onsite bar will be selling several ales from the Wickwar Wessex range. Please bring ID as our stewards will operate a Challenge 25 policy.
  • Please be aware that drunken or abusive behaviour will not be tolerated in the caves. If an individual appears to be under the influence of alcohol, or is acting in a manner deemed inappropriate by our staff, they may be removed from the venue.
  • It is advisable to wear warm, weather-appropriate clothing in the caves as well as sturdy, appropriate footwear. The caves can be cold, particularly at night, and are uneven underfoot in places. Seating is provided, but guests are welcome to bring additional cushions and blankets if they wish, although it is worth noting that they may get dusty!
  • Please follow the instructions of onsite stewards at all times, and remain on the clearly designated paths. Failure to do so may result in your removal from the premises. In the case of an emergency, the event stewards are fully briefed and will instruct you on the necessary actions to take.
