This Friday and Saturday, September 29 and 30, the Playhouse Theater on Main Street in Randolph will show “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” the second film in Stephen Spielberg’s Indiana Jones series, at 7:30 p.m.

In this prequel to “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) teams up with a nightclub singer named Wilhelmina “Willie” Scott (Kate Capshaw) and a 12-yearold boy named Short Round (Jonathan Ke Quan). They travel to Thuggee, a small Indian Village, whose residents believe evil spirits have captured all their children after a sacred precious stone was stolen.

While there, they discover the great mysterious terror surrounding a booby-trapped temple known as the Temple of Doom. The people of Thuggee are attempting to take over the world with the power of five Sankara stones. It’s now up to Indiana and his crew to end the Thuggee campaign, rescue the captured children, and conquer the Temple of Doom.

This 1985 film won an Oscar for best visual effects. It was also nominated for the Oscar for best music for the original score written by John Williams.

The showing of this film is sponsored by Garner Woodworking. Any person or business can sponsor a movie. If you have a classic movie you want to see on the big screen, email Tammy at, or call her during the Playhouse hours at 728-4012.
