I was not lucky enough to see E.T. while it was in theaters so I jumped at the chance to see it during the special re-release. What actually turned out to be an HD play back from a Dish Network DVR and not a digital theater copy or anything special. The sound was great but the picture was just the same as watching it at home.

If the tickets were discounted in some way for a lackluster presentation then this might be worth but full price admission was a too much for what was provided. Wait and catch the blu-ray release of E.T. at home instead. And you may want to wait on the future Fathom Events presentations of classic films until the price of admission goes down or there are special perks like free popcorn and/or posters.
