E.T. Open Air Cinema, 29th July

West Country Waterpark have teamed up with Horizon Open Air Cinema to present E.T. Screened under a moonlit sky at The West Country Waterpark, Bristol.

About this event

Grab a blanket and wrap up warm to watch the E.T. under the moonlit sky, overlooking the waterpark’s lake.

Doors Open: 8:15pm. Film Starts shortly after sunset. Our Open Air Cinema is projected onto the screen. This means we need to ensure it’s dark enough for you to see.

Film synopsis: After a gentle alien becomes stranded on Earth, the being is discovered and befriended by a young boy named Elliott (Henry Thomas). Bringing the extraterrestrial into his suburban California house, Elliott introduces E.T., as the alien is dubbed, to his brother and his little sister, Gertie (Drew Barrymore), and the children decide to keep its existence a secret. Soon, however, E.T. falls ill, resulting in government intervention and a dire situation for both Elliott and the alien.

Film certificate: PG (under 16s to be accompanied by an adult)
