The Selwyn District Council is screening a classic family movie in the latest in a series of Selwyn Movie Nights.
The Steven Spielberg produced movie, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial will be shown at Rolleston College this Friday with doors opening at 6.30pm.
Selwyn District Council Senior Events and Recreation adviser, Dave Tippett, said they are excited to screen another Selwyn Movie Night to help locals get through this winter.
He said ET is a movie for the whole family.
“We’re excited to see parents bringing down their children or grandchildren to enjoy a blast from the past.
“ET is a movie that many Selwyn residents would have enjoyed as a child, and we want residents to bring their families along to watch it together, it’s an absolute classic.”
The movie follows the relationship between a gentle alien that has become stranded on earth and a young boy named Elliott (Henry Thomas). Elliott introduces his new friend ET, to his brother and his little sister who decide to keep its existence a secret.
Mr Tippett said attendees are encouraged to bring their own blanket, bean bag, or cushion and snacks will be available for purchase.
The movie is rated PG, and children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
Booking is essential as space is limited and tickets can be purchased online at EventBrite.
