I was 8 years old and spending a weekend with my dad. He took me to see the new Steven Spielberg movie, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial at the Loew’s Theatre in Journal Square in Jersey City. I remember every detail of that night. I loved that movie and seeing it with my dad.
Now parents my age will get to relive the magic of one of the most popular and beloved stories of all time with their children.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial returns to the big screen in honor of its 30th Anniversary. “TCM Presents ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial’ 30th Anniversary Event” will take place Wednesday, October 3.
