Description

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK 1:30, 8:30

Steven Spielberg and George Lucas launched the Indiana Jones franchise with this larger-than-life homage to 1930s adventure serials. Harrison Ford is the archaeologist adventurer who’s knee deep in both countless bad guys and fearless Karen Allen as they race against the Nazis to unearth the biblical Ark of the Covenant. (1981, 115 min, 4K DCP ‘Scope)

+ INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM 3:45

The prequel to Raiders finds Indy in India, where he is asked by a desperate village to find a mystical stone. He agrees, stumbling upon a Kali-worshipping thuggee cult practicing child slavery, black magic and ritual human sacrifice. Ford and Spielberg deliver the goods in numerous set pieces, some with gruesome imagery that helped spawn the PG-13 rating. (1984, 118 min, DCP ‘Scope)

+ INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE 6:00

Harrison Ford dons the fedora for the last time (until Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) where it’s 1938 and Indy's Nazi enemies have kidnapped his father, Professor Henry Jones Sr. (Sean Connery), to get help in their search for the Holy Grail. Following a trail from America to Venice to the deserts of the Middle East, it's up to Indy to save his father and the Grail. The prologue features River Phoenix, in which we learn how young Indy first developed a taste for heart-pounding adventure. (1989, 127 min, DCP ‘Scope)
