San Francisco-based, Lucasfilm announced Tuesday that “Raiders” showings will begin on September 7, in advance of the Blu-ray release of the “Indiana Jones” films on September 18, according to the New York Times. A list of theaters showing the film can be found at the IMAX website.
Spielberg told the Times that no special effects or other visual elements were changed during the film’s conversion to IMAX, but the audio was enhanced for surround sound.
“When the boulder is rolling, chasing Indy through the cave, you really feel the boulder in your stomach, the way you do when a marching band passes by, and you’re standing right next to it,” he said.
