TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- Be sure to "phone home" and tell your family about the next Movie Night at the Museum.

The Florida Historic Capitol Museum is bringing another 80s classic to the big screen this summer. This time, it's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

The Steven Spielberg movie was highest grossing film of 1982. For a time, it was also the most successful movie in film history.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was so popular that it was actually re-released in 1985. That year is the focus of the Museum's temporary exhibit Driving Florida's Image: the 1985 License Plate Contest, which will be open for viewing before the screening.

Movie Night at the Museum is this Friday, August 28 at the Capitol Complex Courtyard (400 S. Monroe).

The movie starts at 8 p.m., but you're encouraged to get there early and bring lawn chairs or a blanket. There's no cost, and free popcorn and soda are being offered.
