The 2014 Cinema by the Canal summer outdoor film series continues with “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” (2012 restored 30th anniversary edition) on Thursday, July 31 at the Lewes Canalfront Park. This film series for all ages is sponsored by the Rehoboth Beach Film Society and Friends of Lewes Canalfront Park.
Winner of four Oscars®, Steven Spielberg’s “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” is a sci-fi adventure that tells of 10-year old Elliott’s encounter with a friendly alien who is accidentally left on earth when his spacecraft returns home without him. Although fearful at first, Elliott makes contact with the “squashy guy” and we watch as they develop a special bond that teaches troubled Elliott the true meaning of friendship and love. It’s a movie filled with special effects, comedic romps, and let’s not forget an alien so life-like, we believe he really does exist. Said Roger Ebert of the “Chicago Sun-Times”, “This movie made my heart glad. It is filled with innocence, hope and good cheer. It is also wickedly funny and exciting as hell”. [USA, 1982, Runtime: 115 min, Rated PG]
