The biggest-selling movie of the eighties, Steven Spielberg’s E.T. is one of the best family films ever made. Telling the story of a vulnerable alien left behind in the woods, and his relationship with the little boy who meets him, it features iconic moments, laughter, tears, thrills and of course John Williams’ stirring soundtrack. Enjoy this classic film with the stars twinkling overhead at the beautiful Cowley Manor in the Cotswolds; an outdoor movie experience not to be missed.
