This is going to be amazing. Raiders of the Lost Ark is being rereleased for IMAX.
Steven Speilberg from the Dave Itzkoff interview with in the New York Times:
‘Raiders’ is a movie of my own, that I can actually stand to watch from beginning to end,” Mr. Spielberg said. “In that sense, it has a special place in my heart. I don’t rewrite it in my mind; I’m not kicking myself for what I didn’t do. I’m just going along for the ride like everybody else. It’s one of the few films that I’ve directed that I can sit back objectively and observe and enjoy with my family or whoever I’m with, or even alone. Most of my other films, I’m hypercritical of them.
Here’s a list of the the IMAX theaters where you can catch the one week only run that starts September 7th.
One of the things that struck me that Steven Spielberg said to Itzkoff is that when Raiders came out in 1981 it had a first run of fourteen months in some theaters. Times have really changed.
