Doors open at 8:30 PM, film begins at approx. 9:15 PM
Steven Spielberg’s timeless film follows the unforgettable adventure of a lost alien and the 10-year-old boy (Henry Thomas) he befriends. Imitated countless times but still singular, E.T. introduced audiences to Drew Barrymore and Reese’s Pieces, and had kids around the world saying “E.T. phone home.” (115 mins., DCP, rated PG for language and mild thematic elements)
For this Zoom Family Program, there will be a companion reading list created by partners at Columbus Metropolitan Library, along with additional film recommendations, a coloring page, and crafty how-to videos. These will be shared in advance at wexarts.org/zoom. On site before the film, there will be free Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, craft bags for kids with project instructions, and a help table staffed by the center’s Learning & Public Practice team. Attendees are strongly encouraged to RSVP here by June 2 to reserve a spot.
