Tonight (Wednesday) is the last chance to enjoy a free movie outdoors in downtown Little Rock.

Throughout the summer, Movies in the Park has shown flicks like "Man of Steel," "Office Space," "Frozen" and "The Hunger Games." Tonight, it closes out the 2014 season with one of the classics, "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial."

The movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, tells the story of Elliott, a lonely boy who becomes friends with an alien, named E.T. Elliott helps E.T. return to his home while trying to keep his new friend hidden from his mother and the government. 

The 1982 film, which garnered four Oscars and nine nominations, stars Dee Wallace, Henry Thomas, Peter Coyote and Drew Barrymore. It's still one of more successful movies of all time as it grossed more than $435 million in box office sales.

"E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" is rated PG and runs 115 minutes. It will start at 8:30 p.m. at the Riverfront Park at 400 President Clinton Ave. Movie-watchers can bring chairs and blankets for the lawn, or sit in the theater seats. Pets are allowed.
