How’s this for a perfect match.
On August 18, as part of its “Film on the Fly” series, Denver International Airport (DEN) will host a free screening of Steven Spielberg’s classic film, “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial,” on the airport’s open-air plaza between the main terminal and the Denver Westin International Airport hotel
Starting at about 5:30, there will be music, raffle prizes and a performance of live bike stunts on the plaza (to get folks in the mood for E.T.’s famous ride). The movie will begin showing at sunset.
I attended last month’s “Film on the Fly” offering – “Top Gun” – at DEN airport and had a great time. In addition to local residents who came by for the music and the movie, some passengers waiting for flights joined the audience, as well as airport employees on breaks or on their way home from work.
