Movies in the Meadow

After a long period of debate the PCA is proud to begin rolling out our 2013 Movies in the Meadow line-up. Every Friday evening throughout the month of August, the PCA will present a free selection of outdoor classic films located by the Lodge in Delaware Park near the corner of Parkside and Florence Avenues. This series would not be possible without the support of Olmsted Conservancy, Councilman Michael LoCurto and Councilman Demone Smith.

 

Bring a blanket and picnic under the stars with your neighbors. Bring the kids and make it a family summer tradition. Popcorn and drinks will be avalilable. For those interested in being involved in the planning and running of this series are invited to contact the PCA for more information.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

 

"While visiting the Earth at Night, a group of alien botanists is discovered and disturbed by an approaching human task force. Because of the more than hasty take-off, one of the visitors is left behind. The little alien finds himself all alone on a very strange planet. Fortunately, the extra-terrestrial soon finds a friend and emotional companion in 10-year-old Elliot, who discovered him looking for food in his family's garden shed. While E.T. slowly gets acquainted with Elliot's brother Michael, his sister Gertie as well as with Earth customs, members of the task force work day and night to track down the whereabouts of Earth's first visitor from Outer Space. The wish to go home again is strong in E.T., and after being able to communicate with Elliot and the others, E.T. starts building an improvised device to send a message home for his folks to come and pick him up. But before long, E.T. gets seriously sick, and because of his special connection to Elliot, the young boy suffers, too. The situation gets critical when the task force finally intervenes. By then, all help may already be too late, and there's no alien spaceship in sight"
