Nightdrive presents

coming to The Paradise Factory (64 E. 4th St.)
September 22 - October 6

Alien Nation is a live, immersive alien movie about a group of college seniors who might be terrible people, and the race of aliens that invade their bodies to make them better. Running from the FBI, who are coming to neutralize the extraterrestrial threat, these kids are forced to reckon with what it means to change, to outgrow and be outgrown by those you love, and to try to be a better human being. Complete with an original film score, dancing, stage magic, practical effects, a 360 degree set design, and more, Alien Nation casts and recasts its audience as extras in a wild, funny, theatrical thriller tinged with existential regret.

Know Before you Go

Wear shoes you're comfortable moving in! If you're able, the best experience of the show will involve moving around the space. That said...

Need accessible seating? Let us know with an email to and we'll be more than happy to accommodate.

While we do have limited space to store coats and bags, we are not able to provide a coat check. If possible, try to leave bulky items at home.

Be advised! This show uses smoke and strobe effects. Interested in a content warning? Click here.

Come early, stay late! The house opens 30 minutes before each show—plenty of time to take a photo at our step-and-repeat, grab a cheap drink or two at our bar, and just hang out.
