E.T. PHONE HOME
This week marks the 30th anniversary of the release of our favorite alien movie, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, and fittingly, Drew Barrymore recently tied the knot, so it’s like everything is coming full circle. Tonight’s screening of Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi classic will undoubtedly warm your heart just as it did decades ago, but this time with, perhaps, a new grown-up appreciation. For example, did you know that Spielberg modeled E.T.’s look after poet Carl Sandburg and Albert Einstein? Or that he shot most of the film from the eye-level of a child to further connect with Elliott and E.T.? Bring tissue and Reese’s Pieces.
