E.T. wins as Sept. 24 outdoor movie selection

Movie poster for E.T. The Extra-terrestrial

Steven Speilberg strikes again: his 1982 classic E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial will be the third and final film of the Outdoor Movie summer series at Sorauren Park. The movie will be shown on the outdoor screen Sept. 24 at 7:30 p.m.

E.T. was the clear winner in the community movie poll, taking 43% of the online votes. Wall-E came second at almost 15%.

The story of the lost alien found by children who help get him (it?) home follows the screening of Speilberg’s thriller JAWS on Aug. 27.

Outdoor Movies are free… bring your lawn chairs and blankets. Popcorn will be on sale and donations will be accepted to support the free programming produced by the non-profit Friends of Sorauren Park. Cash or online donations accepted on-site. It costs more than a thousand dollars to put on each movie, to cover the costs of insurance, park permits, and movie licensing fees.

The 2016 Outdoor Movie Series would not be possible without the help of community donations and the support of our generous sponsors. Thank you!
