A film by Steven Spielberg.  This film will be shown on the ShopRite Christina Landing rooftop parking deck, which opens at 7:30 pm. Both a classic movie for kids and a remarkable portrait of childhood, E.T. is a sci-fi adventure that captures that strange moment in youth when the world is a place of mysterious possibilities (some wonderful, some awful), and the universe seems somehow separate from the one inhabited by grown-ups. ShopRite Parking Deck (Christina Crossing), August 21st, 7:30 P.M.
