What It Really Is: The same classic we all love, finally with the big-screen treatment it deserves. We’re not going to sit here and tell you how awesome the movie is on its own — because if you don’t know why Indy rocks by now, there’s no hope for you — but we will say that the IMAX is incredible. We can’t think of a movie that merits the crystal clear images and blown-out sound more than Raiders, and while we know an IMAX ticket isn’t cheap, this is definitely worth your while.

Things That Look Especially Sharp in IMAX: Blood spatter, sweat, golden idols, Marion’s shirt patterns
