MOVIE NIGHT FUNDRAISER
Thursday, April 10th @ the Fern School Auditorium
Doors Open at 6pm

Most parents will remember the plot (and that line about phoning home) quite well. But just in case: “ET is about an extra-terrestrial accidentally left behind on Earth and befriended by a young boy (Elliot), and his brother and sister. Elliot attempts to help his new friend contact his home planet, so that he might be rescued, and the children must elude scientists and government agents determined to apprehend the alien for their own purposes...which results in an adventure greater than any of them could have imagined.”

E.T. is as brilliant and powerful as you’ll remember, but it is a tear-jerker with a few mild swear words (courtesy of the teenagers in the script) so it’s rated PG for a reason. We feel it’s best suited for kids aged 7 and up and enjoyed alongside a parent. Here’s a worthwhile assessment to read beforehand: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/et-the-extra-terrestrial
