Three Nights of Indiana Jones at the Sunshine This Weekend

Must Read

Harrison Ford will be on the big screen for three nights in a row this weekend at the Sunshine Cinema’s Midnight Movie in the original Raiders of the Lost Ark. (They’ve added a Sunday night screening as Monday’s Martin Luther King day is a holiday for some.)

Roger Ebert, in the Chicago Sun Times, summed up one of the most classic adventure films of all time, this way: “Steven Spielberg’s RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK plays like an anthology of the best parts from all the Saturday matinee serials ever made. It takes place in Africa, Nepal, Egypt, at sea and in a secret submarine base. It contains trucks, bulldozers, tanks, motorcycles, ships, subs, Clippers, and a Nazi flying wing. It has snakes, spiders, booby traps and explosives. The hero is trapped in a snake pit, and the heroine finds herself assaulted by mummies. The weapons range from revolvers and machine guns to machetes and whips. It’s a Boy’s Own Adventure, a whiz-bang slam-a-rama. It’s done with a kind of heedless joy. Spielberg was old enough (34) to have the clout to make the film, and young enough to remember why he wanted to.” $9.99 // Midnight screenings Jan. 14, 15 & 16. // 143 E. Houston Street.
