E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial – Cliftonville Outdoor Cinema

September 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

“Experience Movie Magic Under the Stars! Cliftonville Outdoor Cinema: Where Films Come to Life!”

At the Cliftonville Outdoor Cinema we bring the community together to laugh, cry, eat popcorn, and enjoy the unique atmosphere of an outdoor movie experience! at The Oval Bandstand & Lawns.

After a gentle alien becomes stranded on Earth, the being is discovered and befriended by a young boy named Elliott (Henry Thomas). Bringing the extra-terrestrial into his suburban California house, Elliott introduces E.T., as the alien is dubbed, 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.
