Co-written by Steven Spielberg and Christopher Columbus, this old-fashioned yarn tells the tale of a band of adventurous kids who take on the might of a property developing company which plans to destroy their home to build a country club. When the children discover an old pirate map in the attic, they follow it into an underground cavern in search of lost treasure but come up against plenty of dangerous obstacles along the way. Look for the early casting of teenage Josh Brolin. (1985, PG, 1H, 51m)

“The Goonies is as hip, sassy, and innocent as its seven teenage heroes.” – Richard Corliss, Time Magazine

“The Goonies has every imaginable funhouse flourish. It has crooks, bats, cobwebs, skeletons, a lovable monster, an underground grotto and a treasure hidden by some of the most considerate, clue-loving pirates who ever lived.” – Janet Maslin, NY Times

E.T.

KIDS FLICKS – ALL TICKETS $5!
Sun. 7/7 at 12noon, Wed. 7/10 & Thu. 7/11 at 1pm

Both a classic movie for kids and a remarkable portrait of childhood, E.T. is a sci-fi adventure that captures that strange moment in youth when the world is a place of mysterious possibilities (some wonderful, some awful), and the universe seems somehow separate from the one inhabited by grown-ups.

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. (1982, PG, 121mins)
