Get ready to phone home for E.T! On Sunday, Nov. 11, at 6:30 p.m., the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC) will present the 30th anniversary edition of one of America's most beloved movies of all time: "E.T." The Extra-Terrestrial." Shown on the giant screen in Yokouchi Pavilion, "E.T.," from Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg, will captivate audiences of all ages. The MACC offers free admission and encourages families to bring low-back beach chairs, towels or blankets to relax on the A&B Amphitheater lawn.
The timeless story follows the unforgettable journey of a lost alien and the 10-year-old boy he befriends. Join Elliot (Henry Thomas), Gertie (Drew Barrymore) and Michael (Robert MacNaughton) as they come together to help E.T. find his way back home. The cast is rounded out by Dee Wallace as the kids' mother and Peter Coyote as the government agent.
When it was released by Universal Pictures, "E.T." became a blockbuster, surpassing "Star Wars" to become the highest-grossing film--a record it held for ten years. Now digitally remastered with enhanced picture and sound for its 30th anniversary, "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" is a favorite film that remains in the hearts and minds of audiences everywhere.
Get ready to phone home for E.T on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 6:30 p.m., at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
Gates open at 5 p.m., and attendees will enjoy pre-show dining (a selection of dishes and beverages are available for purchase), fun art activities for keiki, a photo opportunity with a giant alien, music by Randall Rospond and a chance to win the 30th anniversary DVD.
Pistol Pete Hume will serve as master of ceremonies.
