Just listened to an interview on the Radio 4 programme Inside Science with the project leader at the British Antarctic Survey's Halley VI base, Agnieszka Fryckowska. Once a year, on the longest night at the Winter Solstice, they watch The Thing. The interviewer did not ask which version.

Gallery of pictures of the incredible Antarctic bases. The windows are particularly appreciated as they don't have to go outside to watch the aurora australis.
