Very Cool E.T. Poster Art from Mondo Tees and Summer of '82 Movie Line-up
Alamo Drafthouse will be celebrating 1982's summer of movies, which is considered one of the greatest summer of movies ever. They will be screening several of these films at their legendary theaters this summer.
A list of these films include, Conan the Barbarian, The Thing, Poltergeist, The Road Warrior, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Tron, The Dark Crystal, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Vice Squad, The Secret of Nimh, Friday the 13th Part 3, Q: The Winged Serpent, Pink Floyd: The Wall and more.
Thanks to our friends at /Film we have a look at the poster art created for Steven Spielberg's E.T. The poster was wonderfully created by artist Dan McCarthy. It will go on sale at the screening on June 8th. If there are any left over from the screening, they will put them up for sale online. Just make sure to follow @MondoNews for details.
Here's all the information you need to know of the Summer of '82 screening line-up. Which of the films listed here would you like to see on the big screen most? For me it'd be Poltergeist.
