This week’s movie: E.T.
Both a classic movie for kids and a remarkable portrait of childhood, E.T. is a sci-fi adventure that captures that strange moment in youth when the world is a place of mysterious possibilities (some wonderful, some awful), and the universe seems somehow separate from the one inhabited by grown-ups. Henry Thomas plays Elliott, a young boy living with his single mother, his older brother Michael, and his younger sister Gertie. Elliott often seems lonely and out of sorts, lost in his own world. One day, while looking for something in the back yard, he senses something mysterious in the woods watching him. And he’s right: an alien spacecraft on a scientific mission mistakenly left behind an aging botanist who isn’t sure how to get home. Eventually Elliott puts his fears aside and makes contact with the “little squashy guy,” perhaps the least threatening alien invader ever to hit a movie screen. As Elliott tries to keep the alien under wraps and help him figure out a way to get home, he discovers that the creature can communicate with him telepathically. Soon they begin to learn from each other, and Elliott becomes braver and less threatened by life. E.T. rigs up a communication device from junk he finds around the house, but no one knows if he’ll be rescued before a group of government scientists gets hold of him.
The Pueblo Domestic Violence Community Task Force, Inc. and the YWCA of Pueblo will present their annual Historical Ghost Walk through the Historic Union Avenue and Riverwalk District on October 2nd, 3rd, 9th and 10th. Walking tours leave every 15 minutes from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. starting at El Pueblo History Museum. This event is a storytelling of Pueblo’s past. In case of inclement weather, the event will move indoors.
New stories for this year’s Ghost Walk include The Buddy Johnson Show, Welter-Weight Champion Marty Servo along with Hose House #3 and Pueblo Fires. We will also be bringing back local favorites Ladies of the Night, Muldoon Man, Millie the Apache Midwife, and many more! There will be a total of ten (10) vignettes presented throughout the heart of the district.
The Ghost Walk is a fundraising event for the Pueblo Domestic Violence Community Task Force and the YWCA of Pueblo. Funds raised for the Domestic Violence Task Force will go to help provide training for those who work with victims and for anti-violence education, training and advertising in the community. Funds raised for the YWCA will be used to provide shelter and counseling for women and children experiencing domestic violence related homelessness.
The cost for tickets is $9.00 for the Ghost Walk. Children ages five and younger are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
Advance tickets for both events may be purchased at the YWCA, 801 N. Santa Fe Ave., at El Pueblo History Museum, 301 N. Union Avenue and Southeastern Colorado Heritage Center, 201 W. B Street. Please, cash or check only.
The Fire Playce is a paint-your-own-pottery studio serving the Pueblo area. They offer a nice selection of unpainted bisque ceramics, a variety of under glazes (paints), brushes, idea books, stencils, stamps, a little coaching and a lot of encouragement!
They can seat about 40 painters at a time in their location so reservations are encouraged.
When you are finished creating your treasure, they will glaze it in a non-toxic food safe glaze, kiln fire it and you can pick it up within a week.
Or perhaps you and your family and friends would like to paint and create in a space other than the studio. They offer a Party~To~Go box! You will be able to come to the studio and pick out the bisque you desire and they will pack up a “To Go” box for you with brushes, 5 colors of glaze and bisque and you can spend the afternoon or evening creating without any time constraints. If you choose to take home more than 5 colors, there is a $1.00 charge for each additional color.
When you are done, just return your painted pieces and all of the supplies and they will glaze and fire them. You can pick up your treasures within a week.
