A landmark Steven Spielberg film is coming back to the silver screen Friday in Bakersfield, as “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” lights up the Bakersfield Fox Theater as part of a continuing series of classic movies.

The 1982 adventure film chronicles the relationship between a young boy and his newfound alien friend as they work together to avoid capture by the U.S. government and help the creature return home.

The showing begins Friday at 7 p.m. at the Fox Theater on H Street in Downtown Bakersfield. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $5.

The theater plans to continue its appeal to 80s nostalgia with 1984’s “Ghostbusters” on April 16.
