The Tropic Cinema is once again hosting our Summer Kids Movie Series all summer long! Each movie will be shown on Saturday morning at 10:45 a.m.
Both a classic movie for kids and a remarkable portrait of childhood, “E.T”. is a sci-fi adventure that captures that moment in youth when the world is a place of mysterious possibilities and the universe seems somehow separate from the one inhabited by grown-ups.
One day, while looking for something in the back yard, Elliott (Henry Thomas) senses something mysterious in the woods watching him. And he’s right: an alien spacecraft on a scientific mission mistakenly left behind an aging botanist who isn’t sure how to get home. Eventually Elliott puts his fears aside and makes contact with the “little squashy guy.” They forge a powerful bond as E.T. works to contact his home — but will he be rescued before a group of government scientists gets hold of him?
