A friend of mine passed this info along to me and thought it might be of interest for any Indy fans in the Los Angeles area:
"The American Cinematheque is pleased to announce its Indiana Jones Trilogy retrospective, January 14th and 15th, at the historic Aero Theater in Santa Monica, Ca. Join us as we pay tribute to an American Film classic.Â* "Raiders of the Lost Ark" will screen on Saturday, January 14th at 7:30pm. On Sunday, January 15th we will screen a double feature ofÂ* "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" and "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" starting at 5:00pm. The tribute doesn't end with just the screenings. Visual Effects Supervisor (and Academy Award winner) Michael McAlister will discuss the visual effects work on "Temple of Doom" and "Last Crusade" on Sunday in between films. Additionally, our lobby will be decked out with exclusive behind the scenes photos, artwork, and artifacts representing all three films. The Indiana Jones Trilogy pays homage to the serials of the 30's, 40's, and 50's and it's only fitting that 25 years after the release of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" that the film play again where it all began - on the big screen.
The Aero Theater is located at 1328 Montana Ave (corner of 14th and Montana) in Santa Monica, Ca.Â* All guest appearances are subject to last minute changes and availability. More information can be found on the American Cinematheque/Aero website:
Apparantly, Indy Magnoli has supplied some of his replicas and Lucasfilm is also providing some photos for the display. Sounds like a cool event.
