RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

StorySmack #36

On this episode, Scott and A revisit Raiders of the Lost Ark. (Spoiler alert: it totally holds up.)

We we lucky enough to see the Rooftop Cinema showing, which is  rooftop, outdoor viewing with cocktails. It was a really fun addition to the overall experience! If there’s something like this in your town, don’t miss the chance to go!

This episode doesn’t have our normal “timestamp discussion” of the movie because of the aforementioned venue change. But since it’s such a classic, I bet that’s just fine.
