E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial – Friday Night Movies In The Park
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is a 1982 American science fiction film directed by Steven Spielberg, and starring Henry Thomas, Dee Wallace, Robert MacNaughton, and a very young Drew Barrymore, and Peter Coyote. It’s the story of Elliott (played by Thomas), a lonely boy who befriends an extraterrestrial, dubbed “E.T.”, who is stranded on Earth. Elliott and his siblings help the extraterrestrial return home while attempting to keep it hidden from their mother and the government.
Movies under the stars starts at dusk every Friday night until Labour Day weekend at Shade’s Mills Conservation Area on Avenue Road in Cambridge.
The movies are free for season pass holders and day pass holders. Or, up to six people in a vehicle can gain admission for a special flat fee of $10 on Friday nights starting an hour before show time.
“The movies are proving to be a real hit,” said Brian Hunt, park superintendent. He was looking for a way to improve programming and offer an activity for local families.
The first Friday night movie was June 22 and the last is September 7. The food concession will be open and offering snacks and drinks. Visitors should bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit in front of the big screen.
The movies are all rated parental guidance (PG) or general admission (G) and are suitable for families.
