Raiders of the Lost Ark Quote-a-long

If adventure has a name, it must be Indiana Jones, and now adventure finally gets its due in this very first ever Action Pack celebration of the greatest adventure film of all time - RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK!

As always, we'll have all sorts of props included with your ticket so that everyone in the theater will be donning fedoras, cracking whips, shooting at swordsmen, and scaring each other with snakes. Inside the theater, we'll begin as we also do, with a customized preshow put together by our video archeologists who will spare no expense in raiding ancient Aztec temples to bring you the best in Indiana Jones oddities and fun.

At showtime, your live Action Pack host will get things started by explaining how these Quote-Alongs work and setting the tone for the adventure that will follow, which will feature a separate projection track of subtitles for a few key lines over the film so that we can all mutter "Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?" in perfect unison. But don't worry, true believers - we know that RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK isn't filled with as many quotable lines as there are in our comedy events like ANCHORMAN and TOMMY BOY, so there's also plenty of time in the film when we will be watching in rapt silence and loving every minute of it.

But before the feature starts, your host will be looking for three volunteers to participate in a game of Retrieve the Fertility Idol that will have contestants tangling with the Staff of Ra, swinging over chasms in the theater, shooting whiskey with Marion in Nepal, fighting Nazis, guessing the weight of the idol, and trying to outrun a giant boulder, all in the name of winning the ultimate prize... which will probably be some Alamo passes so they can come back for another visit later on in the year.

So close your eyes and write "Love You" on your eyelids, and start drawing red lines across all of your maps to show where you've been and where you're going, because the next stop is the Alamo Drafthouse where we never serve poisoned dates to our guests and there is plenty you can possess that we will not take away.
