Revival Screening Showcase: Hood College "Phones Home" with E.T. (1983)

1982 ad for the Frederick area screening of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial,
at the now-defunct Frederick Towne Mall cinemas (operated by
Interstate Theaters before being acquired by Hoyts),
as featured in the November 5, 1982 edition of The News.
In commemoration of Hood College's "Home" colloquium series conclusion, the college will present a FREE revival screening of Steven Spielberg's 1982 science-fiction masterpiece, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial on April 28th at 7:00 p.m., inside Hodson Auditorium.

And if you guessed Reese's Pieces would be available during the screening, you're correct!  So take a break from the intensity of final projects (and exams), and relax by watching E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial the way it was meant to be seen, on the big screen. Starring Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore, Peter Coyote, and Dee Wallace.

The special revival screening of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial is presented by The Center for Humanities at Hood College, with a special grant made possible by the National Endowment For The Humanities.

The event is free and open to the general public.

At The Matinee's head author and chief proprietor may show up for this special screening of E.T., depending on the workload of final projects.

Update (5/1): I enjoyed seeing E.T. on the big screen inside Hodson Auditorium.  Yet there was one element missing from the revival screening- some hot, fresh, tasty popcorn.  Plus, I thought that there would be more people in attendance that evening.  There were about 15-20 people in the audience (possibly due to final projects/exams, etc.).

Aside from all that, it was an amazing experience, as I have never seen Steven Spielberg's E.T. on the big screen before.
