Part of The Groves Community Cinema Weekend
In rural America, electrician Roy Neary is investigating a power outage when he witnesses an alien visitation. This encounter fuels an obsessive interest in UFOs and sparks a journey for him and a number of others who get caught up in this and other extra terrestrial activities. Spielberg’s sci-fi spectacular received glowing praise from director Jean Renoir and author Ray Bradbury among many other luminaries.
Running time: 2h18m
Theatre@41 presents the first Groves Community Cinema - a weekend of classic films old and new with something for everyone - and where you pay whatever you think you can afford!
Groves Community Cinema is made possible thanks to an ARG Events and Festivals Grant, in partnership with Make it York and City of York Council.
