Event Notes


Maybe it was an iguana?


In the quiet suburbs of California, young Elliott discovers an extraordinary friend in his backyard - a stranded alien botanist named E.T. As they form an unbreakable bond, Elliott and his siblings embark on a heartwarming adventure to help E.T. return to his distant home planet. But as government agents close in on the unearthly visitor, the children must defy all odds to protect their newfound friend.

Released in 1982, E.T. became an instant classic, captivating audiences with its magical blend of science fiction, friendship, and wonder. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film broke box office records and garnered universal acclaim, earning four Academy Awards. Its enduring legacy extends beyond its cinematic success, as E.T. has become an iconic symbol of childhood imagination and the enduring power of friendship, influencing generations of filmmakers and leaving an indelible mark on popular culture.
