Nomad Cinema Presents: ET
Join the wandering band of movie mavericks for a special film screening
How many ways are there to see a movie? Well, when you add movie magicians The Nomad Cinema into the conversation, the possibilities are endless. Nomad Cinema have no fixed home: they journey from venue to venue, always finding fresh pastures to screen cult classics and old favourites. For this one, get ready for perennial family favourite, ET. ET touches down in Belgrave Square as part of the Grosvenor Film Festival, for a screening of what is probably Steven Spielberg’s best-loved movie. Famously based on an imaginary friend Spielberg invented during his parents’ messy divorce, the film features child star Drew Barrymore in her breakthrough role as Gertie. There are so many great scenes, sequences, ideas and visual effects, such inspirational music from John Williams and so much heart; it’s easy to forget that ET is also quite a dark look at childhood, families and the suburban ideal. Come relive it for yourself, or introduce a new generation to some Spielberg sci-fi at its most magical. Please resist phoning home during the screening, but you can point your finger as much as you like. Certificate: Universal. Running time: 1 hour 54 minutes. Food and drink available to purchase. Picnics with alcohol permitted. This screening is silent with Wi-Fi headsets. Doors open: 6:30pm.
