TUESDAY, JULY 31, 8:00 PM at the MV Agricultural Hall, West Tisbury



E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

Dir. Steven Spielberg | Adventure / Science Fiction | U.S.A. | 1982 | 115 min. | Rated PG

This is one of the most beloved, heartwarming films in Spielberg’s long, storied career (50 films and counting), and like other classics he’s made—Jaws (July 5)—it bears repeated viewing. Especially in summer, and outside! If you’ve watched his latest, Ready Player One (or The Post last year), you can marvel at the director’s range of subject matter. Or just be moved and thrilled, yet again (or for the first time), by his favorite themes: childhood, adventure, adventure in childhood, aliens, intelligent life (on Earth and elsewhere), the kindness of strangers. Can we/you/I ever go home again? Make the call...



Join us for our first-ever drive-in movie! We have a 40-foot screen and plenty of places to park your car or your blanket. There will be no amplified sound—so make sure that your car radio is ready to get tuned in, or bring those boomboxes and handheld radios. 

Arrive early for dinner! Vendors will be set up by 6:30 p.m. The Art Cliff Diner Food Truck and Austin Racine will be selling burgers (lamb, as well as beef), tacos, fries—maybe even a veggie curry or falafel. Not Your Sugar Mamas will have salads, loaded vegan nachos, and cookies. Popcycle will be selling frozen treats. And the MVFF will, of course, have popcorn and movie theater candy (including Reese's Pieces!).

We can’t wait to see you there.



Rain date: Wednesday, August 1

The MVFF drive-in is a drug and alcohol free event.
