Sundown, Riverfest Amphitheatre. Free.
Grab a blanket, ice up the cooler and head down to the River Market. With drive-ins in short supply in these parts, the annual “Movies in the Park” series in the Riverfest Amphitheatre is your best chance to commune with nature and catch a flick. All for the low, low price of … free. The series, which runs every Wednesday through July 23, kicks off with Steven Spielberg's “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.” Now 26 years old (how's that make you feel, '70s and '80s babies?), it remains one of the greatest family adventure films of all time. If there are sentient beings out there somewhere, they owe Spielberg some major PR dough. Before “E.T.” (and to some degree “Close Encounters”), we'd seen few, if any, examples of friendly aliens. The bike riding through the night sky scene is sure to play well under the moonlight.
