AMC Theaters has announced today that they will be offering one of their now famous movie marathon events that will feature the COMPLETE Indiana Jones saga on September 15. Yes, for a mere $25 you can see all four Indy movies on the silver screen. Also, attendees will receive a limited edition poster and a lanyard. Plus, AMC Stubs members get $5 AMC Stubs Bucks for the event. Yes this is happening. Yes it's only in select theaters. Yes it might have already sold out so click the link and get your tickets ahora!
Okay, so now you have your tickets to the marathon on 9/15? Good. Keep your credit card and Stubs number out because you're going to want to go back to that page and look to the right. Yes! You are reading it correctly. RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK in IMAX for one week only! Breath...breath...I know I about passed out.
Yes, you can see Raiders anytime from September 7-13 in freakin' IMAX res at most AMC and Regal theaters and then catch it again in the full marathon on September 15.
This is all too much for me. So I just bought my tickets, wrote this post, and decided to let the reality settle in over the next few days. I've been dreaming of this very new ever since a somewhat vague and oddly populated poll that AMC Theaters posted on their Facebook a few months ago asking what movie franchises fans would love to see as a marathon event. While Indy was high on the list, the last time I checked it was losing to the Pirates franchise (which I love, but come on...are the two sagas even in the same dimension of awesomeness?...negatory!).
Anyway, when this is all over Dr. Jones won't be gone long. Let me remind you that the complete Indy blu-ray set is being released for the first time September 18. But you already have that pre-ordered, right? Double check here: Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures [Blu-ray]
Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory!
