Egyptian to show ‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial’

Published: Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

The Egyptian Theatre in DeKalb has changed one of the films in its series of American Film Institute’s Top Ten Films of All Time.

“The Wizard of Oz,” which was scheduled to run Saturday, will not be shown because of a request from Warner Brothers, who owns the rights to the film.

Instead, “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” No. 24 on AFI’s Top 100 list, will be shown at 2 and 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Tickets cost $7 for adults and $5 for seniors and students. A series package deal for all 10 films is available for $50 for adults and $30 for seniors and students.
