raiders of the lost ark

Last night I saw my favourite film of all time on the big screen: Raiders of the Lost Ark starring Harrison Ford.  It screened at Greater Union Bondi Junction, organised by Popcorn Taxi.  I have loved this film ever since I saw it as a kid and have now, I'm hesitant to admit, seen it 40 times.

After the film Karen Allen, who played Marion Ravenwood, one of the greatest female roles in action film history, was interviewed live on stage about her experience acting in the first of the Indiana Jones quadrilogy.  Karen reprised her role recently in the long awaited sequel Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls.  It was a delight to see her these 27 years after the original 'Raiders' release and you can see the interview here.
