One of the world’s most loved movies is to be screened in Bristol in the most unusual fashion, in what is sure to be an incredible evening.
Steven Spielberg’s heartwarming masterpiece E.T. is without a doubt one of the greatest family movies of all time, having charmed people across the world ever since its release back in 1982.
It tells the story of friendly-but-lost alien E.T., who is befriended by lonely 10-year-old Elliot. With the help of his siblings, Elliot helps E.T. return to his home planet safely, without being caught by his mother or the government.
The film is based on an imaginary friend Spielberg had as a child and is widely considered to be one of the best films ever made, with its unrelenting message of love and friendship touching the hearts of millions.
Despite being more than 30-years-old, the film’s legacy is still alive and well and its magic will be commuted to a lucky audience here in Bristol next year.
E.T. will be screened at the Bristol Hippodrome as part of the Colston Hall Presents series of events, which is a series of performances and gigs hosted by other Bristol venues while Colston Hall itself is closed for refurbishment.
The film’s Academy Award-winning score will be performed live by a full symphony orchestra, in sync with the film as it is projected onto a huge HD screen.
