E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
Auburn State Theatre, in partnership with The Station Public House, presents Cinebrew at the Station, featuring family-friendly films, brews, and food in a comfortable outdoor setting. Journey back to the magic and adventure of “one of the great American films” with E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, the beloved and unforgettable story of a lost alien and the 10-year-old boy who helps him find his way home. Both a classic movie for kids and a remarkable portrait of childhood, E.T. is a sci-fi adventure that captures that strange moment in youth when the world is a place of mysterious possibilities (some wonderful, some awful), and the universe seems somehow separate from the one inhabited by grown-ups. Starring Henry Thomas and Drew Barrymore with Score by John Williams, E. T. The Extra-Terrestrial won many awards, including People's Choice Award for Favorite Movie, Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, and Saturn Award for Best Science Fiction Film.
