Under the Stars Rooftop Movie: Raiders of the Lost Ark



A film by Steven Spielberg. Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is no ordinary archeologist. When we first see him, he is somewhere in the Peruvian jungle in 1936, running a booby-trapped gauntlet (complete with an over-sized rolling boulder) to fetch a solid-gold idol. He loses this artifact to his chief rival, a French archeologist named Belloq (Paul Freeman), who then prepares to kill our hero. ShopRite Parking Deck (Christina Crossing), August 28th, 7:30 P.M.
