The Town of Hamden will present one of the most popular family movies of all time, " E.T.the Extra-Terrestrial" (PG), on Friday, December 13 as part of Hamden's 2013-2014 Free Family Movie Series.
The critically-acclaimed 1985 movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, was for 10 years the highest grossing film of all time, beating out "Star Wars." The movie is a beautiful story of friendship and trust between a young boy and an alien. It blends science fiction with humor, warmth and adventure.
The movie begins at 7 pm. Beginning at 6 pm, families can participate in a craft project based on the movie and designed by the Eli Whitney Museum. Attendees also will be treated to free popcorn and juice.
The event is sponsored by Hamden's Departments of Arts, Recreation and Culture, Community Services and Youth Services, with support from the Eli Whitney Museum and Best Video of Hamden. The movie will be held in the gymnasium of the M.L. Keefe Community Center, located on the corner of Dixwell Avenue and Pine Street (diagonally across from Burger King). Access to the parking lot is through the rear of the center. For information, call (203) 287-2546.
