A Normal Theater Staff Pick from Jenn.

After a gentle alien becomes stranded on Earth, the being is discovered and befriended by a young boy named Elliott (Henry Thomas). Bringing the extraterrestrial into his suburban California house, Elliott introduces E.T., as the alien is dubbed, to his brother and his little sister, Gertie (Drew Barrymore), and the children decide to keep its existence a secret. Soon, however, E.T. falls ill, resulting in government intervention and a dire situation for both Elliott and the alien. PG / 121 min.

"I have actually never seen it. The reason being that when I was growing up, my parents were dirt poor, so we literally never went to the movies. OScreenshot-2018-6-28 Jennifer Poncinver the years, it has become a joke with family and friends that I have never actually seen ET, which was the biggest blockbuster back in the day...Before having kids, my coworkers were incredulous that I had never seen it! And then, after getting married and having a family, I have just gotten busy and forgot all about that film. So showing it at the [Normal Theater] would be the opportunity to finally see something everyone else in the world has seen."  -Jenn
