That’s right…on Saturday, April 26th, at 8pm; a public screening of the movie will be shown outdoors on the lawn of RSU’s Will Rogers Auditorium on the Claremore campus. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and whatever else you need to be comfortable outside. Popcorn, beverages and glowsticks will be available for purchase.

A smash hit in 1981, “Raiders of the Lost Ark” launched the Indiana Jones franchise and cemented Harrison Ford’s status as a super star. The movie became the year’s top-grossing film and remains one of the highest-grossing films ever made.

It was nominated for nine Academy Awards in 1982, including Best Picture and won four (Best Art Direction, Best Film Editing, Best Sound, Best Visual Effects) and a fifth Special Achievement Award for its Sound Effects Editing. The film’s critical and popular success led to three additional films, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”(1984) “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” (1989), and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” (2008) as well as the television series “The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles” (1992–1996) and 15 video games as of 2009.

This event is being sponsored by the RSU Alumni Association. For more information, contact Marisa Littlefield, RSU director of alumni, at 918-343-6816.
