Is ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark’ Getting an IMAX Re-Release?

hollywood-movie-newsIndiana Jones fans are in for a treat! It looks like along with the Blu-ray release of the Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures, there will be a re-release of 1981 ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ in IMAX theaters for one week in September. The remastered film series will be available on Blu-ray on September 18th, 2012. Look for ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ in IMAX September 7th through the 13th.

To commemorate the long-awaited Blu-ray release of Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures, Paramount is reportedly planning to re-release Steven Spielberg‘s all-time action classic Raiders of the Lost Ark in IMAX theaters from September 7 to 13. Spielberg himself worked on the film’s transition to 70mm while simultaneously remastering the 1981 hit for the high-definition home format. Read more after the jump.

ScreenCrush broke the news with a hat tip to Latino Review’s El Mayimbe.

The report states this hasn’t been officially announced yet but, it should be soon, and the press release will have a full list of theaters where you can purchase tickets. It also says the film will play in both full 70mm IMAX as well as digital “LieMAX” formats, though either will be sufficient as Spielberg obviously didn’t shoot the film in IMAX thirty plus years ago.

The Blu-ray set hits shelves September 18 and some ticketing websites are already selling tickets so check your local IMAX. We’ll update and bump this post once the official theater list is released. Will you go check this out?
