Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Tue 11/30 & Wed 12/1 | Buy Tickets » | Passes OK | Tuesday’s screening is free to the first 100 Harvard students with valid IDs!

*Please Note: Due to the lack of a playable print, we will be unable to screen RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK – TEMPLE OF DOOM will play in its place. We regret the issue, and hope the studio will release new prints soon.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom(1984) dir Steven Spielberg w/Harrison Ford, Kate Capshaw, Jonathan Ke Quan [118 min]
This second installment of the Indiana Jones franchise hits the ground running, throwing Jones (Ford), kid sidekick Short Round (Quan), and torch singer Wilhelmina Scott (Capshaw) into the wilds of India. Although contoversial in its depictions of Indians, the scenes of human sacrifice (pulling beating hearts out of men’s chests) are so over the top, the dialogue between Willie and Indy so classically campy, the scene with the bugs so creepy, and the action sequences so fun, that TEMPLE OF DOOM stands solidly alongside the other adventures of Indiana Jones.
