Raiders of the Lost Ark - AFI Screening

  • The American Film Institute Silver Theatre and Cultural Center is doing a screening of the first Indiana Jones film, Raiders of the Lost Ark, as part of their Totally Awesome: Great Films of the '80 film series. If you've never seen Raiders on the big screen then you haven't truly experienced the film! I'll be there dressed in my fedora and leather jacket so I'll be pretty easy to spot. Tickets can be purchased here:

    AFI Silver Raiders Tickets

    Hope to see a lot of people there! There are also showings on August 16 at 8:15 pm and August 17 at 11:30 am if you cannot make this one.

    Official synopsis from AFI:
    RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK
    The much-ballyhooed collaboration between STAR WARS' George Lucas and wunderkind Steven Spielberg resulted in one of the biggest blockbusters of the early 1980s, launched an enduring and much-loved franchise and established Harrison Ford as an A-list leading man. The inspired script by Lawrence Kasdan distills the tradition of boyish adventures in exotic lands found in GUNGA DIN and Hergé's Tintin comics, two-fisted pulp fiction heroes like Doc Savage and Allan Quatermain, and the cliffhanger-heavy serials of old Hollywood into a rip-roaring, action-packed yarn that breathlessly careens from steamy South American jungle to snowy Nepalese mountaintop to dusty Egyptian desert—with Ford's intrepid and wily adventurer/archaeologist Indiana Jones battling ruthless Nazis to be the first to discover an ancient and possibly magical relic.
    DIR Steven Spielberg; SCR Lawrence Kasdan, from the story by George Lucas and Philip Kaufman; PROD Frank Marshall. US, 1981, color, 115 min, 35mm. RATED PG

    If you haven't bought tickets yet, I think there's something wrong with their ticketing system as it only shows the times for Friday. I put in a call to AFI and they're checking into it. Will update when I hear something from them.

    August 15, 2013

    • Christian E.

      Okay, tickets are up again if you haven't purchased them already.

      The AFI theater isn't far from the Silver Spring metro. Definitely walking distance.
