Do you remember in 1982, when the movie “E.T.” came out?
Do you remember how much you loved that movie?
Can you believe that it was almost 30 years ago?!?!
Forget that you just read that last sentence. Today’s blog is supposed to make you feel HAPPY.
Focus on this, instead:
Tonight, to the Intrepid, bring your chair and bring your picnic.
And bring your child-like anticipation.
On the flight deck of the Intrepid, for free, they are screening “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial”.
Yes, for FREE.
“A being from outer space is accidentally stranded on Earth. In his search for refuge, E.T. wanders into a backyard where he is discovered by ten-year-old Elliott. Elliott assumes responsibility for E.T.’s safety while searching, in a race against time, for a way to reunite E.T. with his own kind in this heartwarming story of friendship and discovery.”
From the Intrepid’s website:

I saw a movie recently on the Intrepid.
It was a screening of William Shatner’s “The Captains”.
It was a wonderful experience, and I promised myself that I would do it again soon.
Tonight’s the night!
And I’m spreading the word!
Because, who can resist this 7-year old Drew Barrymore with E.T.?
Phone home, E.T., phone home!
The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is located on the West side of Manhattan on Pier 86, 12th Ave. & 46th Street.
See you there tonight!
