Missing Childhood Piece: Found

ET Movie PosterLast night, Cinemark Theaters held a one day screening for the 30th Anniversary of the movie E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. I was unsure as to whether or not I should attend this movie, when a good friend brought a valid point to my attention. That valid point being that I never got the chance to see this movie in theaters as a kid. Realizing this, I thought it only right to recover that missing piece from my childhood that has been pretty much non-existent. I arrived at the theater an hour early thinking it might actually be crowded. To my surprise, I was the only one there. No worries. This meant that I would have my pick on the best seat in the theater. However, gradually more and more people began to show up. The total number of people at the theater was less than a dozen, which was nice, as smaller crowds tend to make my movie experience more enjoyable. Throughout the movie I tried to keep in mind that this movie is largely aimed at kids. And, more so, aimed at kids from the 80s. I did this, lest I found myself bored and unable to enjoy the movie. This was not the case, as I found myself immensely enjoying the movie quite a bit. And, I felt that missing piece from my childhood slowly, and finally, fall into place.
