Raiders of the Lost Ark Back on the Big Screen

Paramount pulled Raiders of the Lost Ark from distribution earlier this year because of their release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Why they did that is a mystery. Did they think audiences were unable to understand that there was a new Indiana Jones film in theatres if a few revival houses were also showing Raiders? Or did they fear that their new movie wouldn't compare very well to the original?

At any rate, the hiatus is over. Raiders of the Lost Ark is playing in in Maryland right now (hurry - ends tomorrow!) and will be in Arizona and Minnesota over the next few months. (Temple and Crusade are also showing in Maryland.)

Check our Back on the Big Screen Listings for details, and keep checking back. Hopefully more theatres will get Raiders back on the Big Screen, where it belongs!
