Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of the biggest Hollywood hits ever, and is about to get bigger…. IMAX bigger! Starting September 7th, there will be a one week limited run in theaters featuring a remastered IMAX version of the film made from the original 35mm film. Said Spielberg (who would in no way be exaggerating to get us into theaters):
“Suddenly, there was definition in the shadows, which I had never seen before. And the shadows weren’t murky and washed out; they were sharp as a tack… I sat there, I think, probably with my mouth open a little wider than it normally is.”
