E.T. the Extra- Terrestrial

This is a free outdoor screening.

After a gentle alien becomes stranded on Earth, the being is discovered and befriended by a young boy named Elliott, played by Henry Thomas. Bringing the extraterrestrial into his suburban California house, Elliott introduces E.T., as the alien is dubbed, to his brother and his little sister, Gertie, played by Drew Barrymore, and the children decide to keep its existence a secret. Soon, however, E.T. falls ill, resulting in government intervention and a dire situation for both Elliott and the alien.


This multiple Oscar and Golden Globe winning film from director Steven Spielberg is one of the great classics of modern cinema.  We are presenting it outside in the Myriad Gardens to celebrate the amazing career of editor Carol Littleton, who was born in Oklahoma City, raised in Miami, OK, and graduated with two degrees from the University of Oklahoma. Littleton was nominated for the Oscar for Best Film Editing for E.T.
