Violent alien movies are fun to watch, but sometimes, it’s nice to see a friendly earth visitor whose M.O. is not to invade the planet and obliterate all of humankind. In comes Cinespia.

This year, it chose the perfect movie to close its summer series with: E.T. You know the one, the ’80s movie brimming with overwhelming cuteness that makes you forget all about Drew Barrymore’s troubled childhood (Cigarettes at nine? Check. Marijuana at 12? Check. Cocaine at 13? Oh my. Don’t worry, she’s fine now.) Everyone’s favorite extra-terrestrial, the most adorable alien in the history of film was actually inspired by Steven Spielberg’s imaginary friend that he created after his parents’ divorce. E.T. is also filled with references to the director’s childhood such as Elliott tricking his mother into thinking that he was sick by putting the thermometer near a lightbulb – cunning, but smart.

The movie remains timeless from its first release in 1982; who knew a nice, heartwarming film with a great story can be found without all that CGI technology? So if you’re looking for a nostalgic trip down memory lane, head on to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to see it on a big screen projection amongst other Angelenos. Make sure to bring some snacks (some Reese’s Pieces candy perhaps?) and plenty of thick blankets, because whether you like it or not, cold temperatures are definitely creeping in as summer comes to an end.

Movie starts at 8 p.m., and Cut Chemist will deejay before and after the screening. $10 donation tickets will be available at the gate, and picnic reservations and parking passes are also available online.

Hollywood Forever Cemetery is located at 6000 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood. For more information, visit
