“Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark”

Steven Spielberg’s famous adventure flick Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark  is coming to the Drive-In, in partnership with Show Imaging!  

The first in the Indiana Jones franchise, Raiders of the Lost Ark opened in the number one box office spot at its theatrical release in 1981. The film won four of the nine Academy Awards for which it was nominated, and went on to become one of the most well-loved action films by critics and traditional movie goers alike!

Set in the year 1936, Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford), a famous archeologist, adventurer, and college professor, is hired to receive the Ark of the Covenant by the United States’ government. At the order of Adolf Hitler, the Nazis are also on a mission to acquire the relic.

With the help of his ex-lover, Marion Craine (Karen Allen), they set out on an unforgettable quest and adventure. Relentlessly pursued by Hitler’s henchmen, Indy infiltrates their massive digging operation in a race against time to discover the Well of the Souls, where the Ark has lain undisturbed for centuries.

This action-adventure classic will keep you on the edge of your seat…and rolling on the floor in laughter at Professor Indiana Jones’s wisecracks and witty humor!
