Sunday, Feb. 19, 6:30 p.m.—RANDOLPH—The Chandler Film Society will present Steven Spielberg’s classic adventure film, “Raiders of the Lost Ark” Sunday, Feb. 19, 6:30 p.m. It is the second of two films with the theme “The Big Screen.”
Spielberg’s film introduced audiences to the character of the swashbuckling adventurer Indiana Jones, played by Harrison Ford. The story is set in 1936, when Jones leaves the Peruvian jungle to find the fabled Covenant of the Lost Ark before the Nazis can get their hands on it.
Roger Ebert wrote that “Spielberg’s film is an out-of-body experience, a movie of glorious imagination and breakneck speed that grabs you in the first shot, hurtles you through a series of incredible adventures, and deposits you back in reality two hours later—breathless, dizzy, wrung-out, and with a silly grin on your face.”
In March the Chandler Film Society presents the first of two westerns, “Shane,” followed by “High Noon” in April to close out the series.
Admission is $9 per person, and the doors open at 6 p.m. for light refreshments.
Chandler Center for the Arts is located at 71-73 Main Street, Randolph. For more information, contact Emily Crosby at [email protected] or 802-431-0204.
