Nice, but probably better at home.

It was nice to see on the big screen again, but the film wasn't updated for the IMAX experience. It was very grainy and really looked like the original 30 yr old reels.

I first saw Raiders on the big screen when I was six years old and it instantly became my favorite movie...31 years later it still holds up and remains my all time favorite. IMAX LOOKED GREAT....with the exception of some grainy or blurry scenes....The sound was amazing too. I plan on checking out at least once more before its IMAX run is through!

A True Classic Back on the Big Screen!

No matter how big your home TV is, it's no IMAX screen! This movie comes alive on the big screen and is truly a wonderful moviegoing experience. I found this movie to be thrilling all over again, and I was truly amazed at how well it has held up. The story, the effects, and the acting is superb. This is one of those few films that will live on forever. I honestly believe that it's one of the 100 best films of all time, and I'd definitely place it fairly high on that list.

Phenomenal Experience!

It blows my mind that Paramount didn't promote this better. This was a phenomenal experience, and just a ridiculous amount of fun to see this in the theatre again. The sound mix is vastly improved and the picture quality was solid. Genuine laughter and enjoyment from the (sadly) sparse audience. A movie where, when you see it on the big screen, you "get" why it was so ridiculously popular.

Raiders of the Lost Blu-ray

Just got home from the midnight IMAX showing of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' and, even after thirty years, it is still in my top ten favorite movies. My earliest movie memory is from when I was 6 years old and my mom and uncle took me to the drive-in to see the double feature of 'Dragon Slayer' and "Raiders of the Lost Ark'. While it was exciting to watch the dragon, Verminthrax Pejorative, incinerate and devour 6th century villagers, witnessing Nazis melt by the power of God was pretty scary for a 6 year old. Needless to say, it made an impression... This time around, it was on an even bigger screen, with better sound quality, thanks to the IMAX presentation. The only issue I had was that the picture did not look like a pristine HD Blu-ray presentation. The movie looked like my DVD version, just blown up for the IMAX. Some of the scenes were very blurry or out of focus. Maybe it was the projector, but I think it was a DVD presentation and not the Blu-ray.
