Oct. 19, 2010 | 4:37 p.m.

In West L.A., everybody can hear you scream.  On Friday, the Royal Theatre in West Los Angeles presents “The Alien Trilogy.”  First up at 7 p.m. is Ridley Scott’s director’s cut of his 1979 blockbuster “Alien,” followed at 9:35 p.m. by James Cameron’s pulsating 1986 sequel “Aliens,” for which Sigourney Weaver earned a lead actress Oscar nomination. Her character, of course, was the fearless Ellen Ripley, who was ranked fifth by Entertainment Weekly on its list of “The 20 All Time Coolest Heroes in Pop Culture.” And finally at 12:30 a.m. is David Fincher’s first film, “Alien3” from 1992, which also stars Weaver. For more information, there’s the website for the Royal Theatre or call (310) 478-3836.
