Coming soon to Chapel Hill.. a new twist on a classic summertime tradition!

What: A free screening of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

When: Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 8:00 pm

Where: Wallace Deck at 150 East Rosemary Street in Chapel Hill

Why: What could be better than a free night out on the town?!

In the summer of 1982, Stephen Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial first dazzled viewers on the big screen. While many may have seen this timeless classic at their local drive-in, you are invited to see a free screening of E.T. at the Wallace Plaza bike-in.

There’s more!

In addition to saving money on gas, getting your daily exercise, and helping to clean the air, there will be free and secure valet service for bicyclists. Additionally, everyone who rides their bike to the bike-in will receive free Reese’s Pieces and free popcorn. Leave your wallet and your car keys at home, bring your friends, and have a night of free fun on the town!
