E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial


Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall Downtown
Thu., March 2, 7:30 p.m. 2017 All Ages


Its nickname might be “the Schnitz” these days, but 87 years ago the brilliantly ornate building at SW Broadway and Main was called the Paramount Theatre, hosting thousands of movie-going Portlanders a night over the course of four decades. This evening, the massive auditorium returns to its cinematic roots in a big way as the Oregon Symphony presents E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, raising Steven Spielberg’s 1982 blockbuster to new heights by providing live, orchestral accompaniment of the Oscar-winning score in sync to the film projected on a huge high-definition screen. If the story of an undocumented alien hunted down by the evil government and ultimately saved by Reese’s Pieces, levitating bicycles, and a six-year-old Drew Barrymore doesn’t move you, I regret to inform you that your heart appears to be missing.
