‘E.T.’: Steven Spielberg’s spaceman still glows 30 years later

E.T., Elliott and a gang of kids on bicycles first flew across the silver screen 30 years ago this week in “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial,” which is showing tonight as part of the Los Angeles Film Festival.

Steven Spielberg’s 1982 film is a touchstone for children of the 1970s and ’80s, who watched in theaters and on worn VHS tapes, letting John Williams’ otherworldly score envelope them as the strange spaceman with the glowing heart discovered Reese’s Pieces, beer and the best and worst in humanity.

 Ummm…30 years huh?
