Since Indiana Jones first appeared on-screen with his fedora, bullwhip, and leather jacket in Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, his character has inspired a slew of films, television shows, video games, toys, and theme-park rides. But it will always be the first film, directed by Steven Spielberg and co-produced by George Lucas, about a snake-hating archaeologist who goes in search of a golden idol in an ancient Peruvian temple and ends up fighting the Nazis in the Egyptian city of Tanis that holds a special place in fans’ hearts. Tonight, hop aboard for adventure with Indy and his crew. But go with caution—Bryant Park might be booby-trapped.
