Beginning this weekend, the kids are out of school and home for the holidays. By December 31, they are going to be bored out of their minds, looking for something to do and your wallet will be whimpering from all the related expenses that come with the holidays. Don’t fret! The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – Mason Park is here to help.

Join us for a week of free screenings of E.T. – THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL beginning Monday, December 31 at 10 AM. We’ll offer a free presentation of this classic Steven Spielberg film every day through Friday, January 4. That’s five chances to share one of the greatest family films of all time with your loved ones.

In case you’ve been living on another world, E.T. – THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL is the 1982 family drama from Steven Spielberg. Henry Thomas stars as a young boy suffering from loneliness who learns the true meaning of alienation when he meets a stranded alien searching for a way home. Dee Wallace, Peter Coyote and an impossibly young Drew Barrymore co-star in this touching story of friendship.

The screenings will be from the gorgeous new digital restoration that the film underwent in celebration of its 30th anniversary. The best part? No digital walkie-talkies! This is the classic version of the film that you grew up with! The screenings are free and admission is first come, first served. If you want to guarantee a spot for you family at one of the screenings, though, you can buy a $5 food and beverage voucher for every seat you want to reserve. This voucher will save you a spot in the theater and can be used toward anything from our menu during the event.
