Green Screen Film Series: E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

Thursday, September 8 | Gates open at 7:30P; Film begins at 8:00P

Austin’s warm summer nights are back, and so is our Green Screen Film Series!

Join us outdoors for E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, featuring a troubled child who summons the courage to help a friendly alien escape Earth and return to his home world.

Our Green Screen Film Series is held one Thursday per month throughout the summer in the lakeside amphitheater at The Contemporary Austin – Laguna Gloria. This season we’re letting Tom Friedman’s alien-like silver sculpture, Looking Up, inspire us. We’ll be screening classic sci-fi movies featuring other-worldly beings all summer long!

So, gather your friends, pack a blanket, and teleport yourself over to the best outdoor movie night in Austin! Arrive early so you and your crew can wander the grounds and experience the sculpture park as the sun sets. Food and drink can be purchased from our on-site café, Spread & Co. at Laguna Gloria! Enjoy free drinks from JuiceLand! We will also have refreshing Topo Chico to keep you hydrated! Feel free to BYO snacks and drinks of choice! Tip: pre-order food when you purchase your movie ticket and it will be waiting for you when you arrive!

Thank you to Austin Film Society, our Green Screen Film Series community partners.
