It was so cool seeing this movie on the big screen!! It was my first time since I was to little to see it the first time in theaters. It was nice to be able to get the info about the movie. It was just like I remembered when I was little. I made sure to get my popcorn & Reece's Pieces(of course). lol. It's a classic movie that any kid should see. Funny & can also make you cry. The story just sucks you in & you will fall in love with it.

This is and will always be a wonderful film for the whole family. This was hosted, with their usual panache, by TCM, which always gives the film a little more Hollywood flair. Unfortunately, there seemed to have been relatively no publicity for the event, other than on TCM itself. Many patrons with children, with whom I spoke, said had they known, they would have gone to see E.T. instead of their more violent choice. The sad fact is not many viewers have higher tiers of cable, where Turner can be found.
I would like to see more of "where are they now?" Drew Barrymore, of course, we know, but the other "children", who were so naturally believable---what became of them ? And the quizzes are great fun too !
You need to bring more events to the Boston area with higher profile advertising.
Thanks for asking,

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.

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!
