a closer look: Dana and Ken watch E.T.

After five years you would expect a show to have some reruns.

So it's not too surprising that KEN P.D. SNYDECAST #169: Birthday-in-a-Biskit features a story from Ken and Dana that they both told us before. It's the story of how they both saw E. T. the first time.

On KEN P.D. SNYDECAST #109: Vomit Luge and KEN P.D. SNYDECAST #169: Birthday-in-a-Biskit Ken talks going to see E. T. The Extra-Terrestrial with a chum as he ate Triscuits in the back of his grandmother's chinook:

Dana mentions that he saw E.T. at the 25th Street theater in Easton, PA.

A small bit of research shows that there was an AMC Theater in the 25th Street Shopping Center that was open from 1979 to 2000.

It used to be right behind this McDonalds:

Interestingly Dana said he first tried a Chicken McNugget on that day. It's possible that was IN THIS McDonalds.

So if you ever find yourself in Easton, pull through the McDonald's drive thru and grab yourself a 10 peice then download E.T. on your iPhone and watch it in the parking lot. Or you could find a Chinook and eat Triscuits in the back as you watch E.T.

For more on E.T. visit your local library.
