HONOR, Mich. (AP) - E.T. is returning to the big screen - a very big screen.

The Cherry Bowl Drive-In theater in northern Michigan is celebrating a new digital projector by showing the 1982 movie, “E.T. The Extraterrestrial,” on Thursday night.

The drive-in last year won a contest held by American Honda Motor. The digital projector allows the theater to keep up with technology after decades of showing movies in Honor, 25 miles southwest of Traverse City.

The special event is presented by the Benzie County Chamber of Commerce. Gates open at 6 p.m. with face-painting, games and music. The movie starts at 8:50 p.m.

Tickets for the movie and all activities are $10 for anyone 6 and up.
