Hey Dallas/Ft. Worth peeps, are you an Indiana Jones fan? If so we’ve got some exciting news for ya. This weekend we’ll be hosting not one but TWO showings of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK at the historic Texas Theatre, 35mm print my friends. This is the real deal, the way it was meant to be seen. Many people have still never seen Indy’s first adventure theatrically, and this is a rare opportunity to experience the original. The Texas Theatre is a fantastic repertory cinema house, and we’re helping them do it up in style. Bigfanboy.com is hosting a special Friday night party, and we’ll be giving away all sorts of cool stuff – plus prizes for trivia and costumes. Everyone is going to walk away with something cool. You don’t have to do anything special, just buy yourself a ticket for the Friday, 7:10pm show or the Saturday, 4:30pm show – we’re hosting both! Show up in costume and get an extra special prize (of some sort). We want this to be a fun night for hardcore Indy fans, so get yourself in a party mood and join us Friday evening or Saturday afternoon for all the fun.
And to get you even more hyped up, here’s some hi-res wallpapers for your desktop compliments of Bigfanboy.com!
A few notes – if you’ve never been to the Texas Theatre, this is a great place to see movies in a classic environment. Painstakingly restored by the fine folks at Aviation Cinemas, the main house features an impressive 650 seats. Perhaps best known in history as the location where Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested, you’ll immediately feel the nostalgia upon entering the doors of this stylish building. The Texas Theatre also has a full bar and plenty of lounge seating, which is a great place to have a drink and talk about the film you’re about to see… or just saw! We’ll be hosting two showings on RAIDERS, the Friday 7:10pm show, and the Saturday 4:30pm show, and doing prizes and whatnot at both. Come in costume for our special Texas Theatre photo op!
RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK will be playing at the Texas Theatre in 35mm on June 27, 28, 29 and 30, 2012 – we are ONLY hosting the Friday and Saturday shows.
