'E.T.' opens Dipson's Classic Family Films Series

With temperatures dropping and families looking for some warmer options for kids, the timing could not be better for Dipson Theatres' Classic Family Films Series starting Feb. 20 in the Dipson Eastern Hills Cinema.

The weekly movies start at 10 a.m. Saturdays through May 7. Tickets are $4.

This year's series will kick off with Steven Spielberg classic "E.T." The tale of a stranded alien befriended by a young northern California boy has become one of the director's most beloved films and should become a new favorite for the young generation of movie fans attending the screening.

The rest of the lineup includes some nostalgic heavy flicks in "Hook" and the animated film "The Land Before Time" as well as modern selections like "The Lego Movie,"" "Fantastic Mr. Fox" and "School of Rock." For info, visit
