I had never shown my 6 year old this movie because I had been hoping for the opportunity for him to experience the movie the way I had 30 years ago. The movie remains timeless and still captures the sincerity of the characters. My son laughed throughout the movie picking up on all the humor, and cried at the end - just like mom. We don't have many movies with boys as the main characters to it was a nice way for him to connect. It brought back a lot of memories for my husband and me. It was a wonderful family event to share and a wonderful opportunity.

A time-less classic that I can never get tired of watching! It was wonderful to see it on the big screen again, and as I stuffed my face with popcorn and Reeses Pieces, I believe somewhere in there I found a chance to shed a tear! E.T., you'll always be Right Here... in my heart !!!

There's nothing quite like a movie in a movie theater. Sure, it's fun to be able to watch at home, but the big screen makes a huge difference. What a treat to see a classic movie like E.T. in the theaters again!

Whenever I have a chance to see this movie on the big screen, I go. I first saw E.T. in the theater when I was five in 1982. To this day, it still is my favorite movie of all time. Star Wars IV is a close second, but no other movie held such emotion for me as a child and to this day, when I watch it, those old feelings come back. No other movie can do that for me.
I saw the 20th anniversary edition 10 years ago with the infamous walkie-talkies-instead-of-guns CGI updates and while it still brought up some of that emotion, it wasn't the movie I grew up with. Now with the re-release for 30 years, the guns are back and so is the film I cherished deeply. The film transfer looked great. The sound was phenomenal. And nothing was lost in terms of E.T.'s magic, wonder and humor. If you're looking for a first-time movie experience for your children, and one that will change the way they view movies, possibly even change the way they view life, I would recommend it above all others.
