Event Details

Join us the third Thursday of each month on the green of the Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle for a family-friendly series of outdoor film screenings. The Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle and The County Theater, in partnership with The Moving Picture Cinema. Bring outdoor movies to the community, with the 2021 “Movies at the Mercer Museum” series.
We’re kicking off our 2021 series with a film that has touched the hearts of generations of young moviegoers. Elliot, a lonely kid living in suburban California, comes across a shy alien in his backyard. Quickly the two develop a strong bond of friendship after Elliot decides to hide the alien, who he calls E.T.
The Movies at the Mercer Museum film series is underwritten by BLB&B Financial Advisors.
