If your childhood was anything like mine, then it most certainly included one of the most touching and monumental stories to grace the silver screen. I think this was one of the first poignant films that I watched as a child that truly affected me on a whole new emotional level mixing beguilement with trepidation and thrills, but most importantly, understanding the importance of loyal friendship and trust (no matter how different you are!).
I am elated to learn that E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Live in Concert will be landing in Toronto on December 29 & 30 at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts.
Director Steven Spielberg’s heartwarming masterpiece is one of the brightest stars in motion picture history. Filled with unparalleled magic and imagination, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial follows the moving story of a lost little alien who befriends a 10-year-old boy named Elliott. Experience all the mystery and fun of their unforgettable adventure in the beloved movie that captivated audiences around the world, complete with John Williams’ Academy Award®-winning score performed live by a full symphony orchestra in sync to the film projected on a huge HD screen!
What type of memories do you hold with this nostalgic film? I remember my best friend at the time being Elliott for Halloween with a make-shift E.T. in a basket on his bike. I’ve seen so many Elliott’s since; such an impact this film has made in the hearts and minds of many.
And who else associates Reese’s Pieces with E.T. every time now? I do!
And fun news! If you’re in Toronto, look out for E.T. in and around the Sony Centre! A replica E.T. will be gallivanting throughout Toronto for some fun photo opportunities.
And even more amazing news!
Tickets can be purchased to the public on May 13 but I have a “Beat the Box Office” family 4-pack of tickets to the Thursday, December 29th performance for one of my readers!
