BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Citi Bike is taking its riders back in time by hosting a bike-in movie screening of Steven Spielberg’s classic film, “E.T,” celebrating the company’s New York City expansion.

The bike-in will take place on Tuesday at 8 p.m. at 50 Kent St., right outside of Williamsburg, according to Citi Bike. The iconic bike scene from Steven Spielberg’s “E.T” makes it the classic bike movie for moviegoers to enjoy, the company said. Attendees can join in for free as long as they RSVP on the website.

Citi Bike will also be offering free valet bike parking, biking classes, and Reese’s Pieces, a candy famously featured in the film. Doors open at 6 p.m. and Citi Bike members will get VIP seating and special treats.

The bike share company is showing the screening to celebrate the 139 new stations being built in Queens, Long Island, Brooklyn and upper parts of Manhattan, according to its website. The stations will be brought to Queens and Long Island for the first time since it was launched in 2013.

Citi Bike plans to have 700 stations located every few blocks throughout the boroughs by the end of 2017.
