Our movie on this evening will be Steven Spielberg’s unforgettable family film “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” (1982) starring Henry Thomas, Dee Wallace, Robert MacNaughton, and Drew Barrymore.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is Steven Spielberg’s warmhearted classic delight for both children and adults. It tells the story of an alien creature, E.T., mistakenly left behind on Earth. When a young boy, Elliott (Henry Thomas), finds E.T. and hides him in his home, both their worlds are changed forever. E.T. teaches Elliott and his two siblings (Drew Barrymore and Robert MacNaughton), whose parents have recently separated, about caring and love while the children protect E.T. from the scary and sometimes sinister
world of grown-ups.

The movie is rated PG for language and mild thematic elements.

People are reminded to bring a blanket or lawn chairs, as there is no fixed seating available in the park. Come early to get the best spot!

As with all of the films in the “Films Al Fresco” series, this event is being held as a fundraiser for the Monarch Theatre Revitalization Project, and admission is by donation. The suggested donation is $5.00. Concessions (pop, Monarch popcorn, chips, candy, chocolate bars) will be available for sale on site, and all proceeds will benefit the Monarch Theatre.

The series is sponsored by CHAT 94.5 FM and MY96 FM.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is additionally sponsored by Rapscallion Design and The Patio Café.
