Celebrate E.T.'s 35th Anniversary at the JBFC!

By Paige Grand Pré, Education Communications Associate 02.23.17

Celebrate E.T.’s 35th anniversary by reliving the adventure on the big screen! Join E.T. and Elliott, a lost alien and 10-year-old boy, as they form an unlikely friendship and work together to help E.T. find his way back home in E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.

Share a fun afternoon with the family at the JBFC! Enjoy Rebel Without a Taco, a short film by JBFC Media Arts Lab students in grades 7–8. Then, during E.T., play our scavenger hunt. We will give you cards so you can follow the clues in the film, then show us your completed answers after the screening to win a prize.

Tickets: $15 per person, includes complimentary popcorn and soda

And don’t forget to enter our raffle with great prizes for the whole family! Prizes include:

  • BMX bike from Ride 914
  • Family Fun Pack–climbing package for five people from The Cliffs at Valhalla, Flour & Sun gift card, and free JBFC movie tickets with popcorn and soda coupons
  • 4 complimentary tickets to Happy Dreamer with Peter H. Reynolds, award winning author and illustrator, at the JBFC on April 29
  • JBFC gift card toward a class at the Media Arts Lab

Raffle tickets are $5 per entry and can be purchased between now and March 5 at the Customer Service Desk in the Theater lobby. Winners will be announced at the E.T. screening, but do not need to be present to win.

Individual & group tickets are onsale now - come join us!

All proceeds from the family raffle and the E.T. 35th anniversary screening will support JBFC’s Scholarship and Transportation Fund. Thank you for helping us make our innovative media education programs available to ALL students, regardless of their ability to pay.
