Marking the 30th anniversary of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the OI Indiana Jones Film Festival on October 11 and 12 offers a weekend of screenings and special events celebrating one of UChicago’s most famous fictional students: Dr. Henry Walton “Indiana” Jones Jr. Allegedly, OI founder James Henry Breasted and fellow pioneering OI archaeologist Robert Braidwood inspired the character of Indiana Jones. In addition to screenings of all three original Indiana Jones films, this two-day festival includes discussions with OI archaeologists and faculty about the themes and locations depicted in the films, a reception at the OI Museum, a trivia event with First Aid comics, and a costume contest. Tickets are free for OI members and public tickets start at $7.
