This screening is part of the Alamo's reunion of the cinematic class of 1984!

If adventure has a name... it must be Indiana Jones.

Indiana is back in action and on to new adventures. After a deal for an artifact in Hong Kong goes south, Indy and his best pal, Short Round, are on the run with a whiny lounge singer they picked up along the way. When their plane crashes in a poverty stricken town in India, Indy takes it upon himself to investigate their case of  missing children as he searches for some mystical stones.

Chilled monkey brains, bugs galore and a terrifying guy who will literally rip the heart out of your chest follow in one of the greatest action adventure follow ups of all-time. (Greg MacLennan)
