E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

Sunday, Jun 25 at 3:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Steven Spielberg. USA, 1982, 115 mins. 35mm. With Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore, Robert McNaughton, Dee Wallace. In Spielberg’s enduring masterpiece, one of the most wondrous and deeply touching of all science-fiction movies, young Elliott, a lonely child of divorce, befriends an outer-space creature who has been abandoned by his fellow aliens and yearns to return home to his distant home planet. A symphony of feeling, featuring an audacious, overwhelming score by John Williams and cinematography by Allen Daviau that makes California suburbia look like a nocturnal dreamworld, E.T. is the rare blockbuster that is also a work of art. (Released June 11, 1982)
