E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

Left behind by his ship, a friendly alien befriends and bonds with lonely 10-year old earthling Elliot (Henry Thomas), as they both try to figure out how to “phone home.” But can they outrun (or fly) the research-hungry government scientists?

This mega-blockbuster was nominated for nine Oscars and won four (including one for John Williams’ unforgettable score).

* September 8th will be a Sensory Friendly Screening, which caters to the needs of individuals who may find traditional moviegoing overwhelming.

"Spielberg has always demonstrated extraordinary aptitude for filmmaking, but E.T. is far and away his most satisfying work to date. He knows how to transform the raw material of his childhood into an appealing popular fable. There are sequences that touch you to the quick in mysteriously casual ways"
Gary Arnold, Washington Post
