E.T. is tonight’s free outdoor movie at Mt. Airy’s library

Looking for an out-of-this-world adventure for the whole family? Look no further than the final installment in the Moonlight Movies in Mt. Airy series is E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.

The movie begins when a spacecraft lands, and one of the aliens aboard wanders off. Humans arrive on the scene, and the creature runs to try to get back to his ship, but is left behind.

The alien flees and eventually finds refuge in the suburban home of a young boy named Elliot. Elliot and his family grow close to the creature, E.T., and begin the process of helping him find a way home.

Obstacles abound for the young boy and his other worldly friend. It becomes a race against time to save E.T. when he and Elliot fall ill.

The film will be shown tonight at Lovett Memorial Garden at 8:30 p.m. Seating begins at 8 p.m. This is a free movie and will be shown outdoors.

Mt. Airy’s Moonlight Movies is sponsored by Mt. Airy USA, Trolley Car Diner, and the Lovett Memorial branch library.
