It had been 30 years since I had last seen E.T. in a theatre, so it was great to see it on the big screen again. The quality of the image and the sound was excellent. I applaud the recent tendency to have newly restored movies displayed in theaters not long before they get released on Blu-Ray. One simply does not get the same experience at home as one does on the big screen.

I think these events would get rather better attendance if the publicity about them was better (I happened to catch a matinee showing as this was shown the same day as the Presidential Campaign Debate in the evening). The matinee audience was somewhat thin. Perhaps spreading the word a bit more and perhaps showing it on two evenings in a row would be better.
