Free Films on Civic Plaza: E.T.: The Extraterrestrial
Enjoy an outdoor movie viewing experience like no other with Civic Cinema — classic films shown on a giant screen on Civic Plaza! This should be a cool, fun, free family event.
On Friday, July 24 (2009), grab the kids and the popcorn to enjoy a free movie, E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, under the stars downtown. It’s the classic science fiction movie about the adorable alien who came to earth and befriended the equally adorable Drew Barrymore. Funny and weepy, it will provide great entertainment for the whole family.
The city will provide seating and tables, so you’re free to bring a picnic (no glass containers or alcohol), but you’re welcome to bring your own blankets and chairs if you so desire. Heck you can even bring Fido, as long as he’s leashed.
The movie will start at approximately 9:00pm, depending on darkness. Ah, it brings back memories of the old drive-in days, doesn’t it?
The screening itself is free, but expect to pay for parking.
Civic Plaza is located in the heart of downtown Albuquerque, at Third St NW and Marquette Ave NW.
