ABOUT "INDIANA JONES AND THE RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK"

Get ready for edge-of-your-seat thrills in "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark," winner of four Academy Awards(R). Indy (Harrison Ford) and his feisty ex-flame Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen) dodge booby-traps, fight Nazis and stare down snakes in their incredible worldwide quest for the mystical Ark of the Covenant. Experience one exciting cliffhanger after another when you discover adventure with the one and only Indiana Jones.

ABOUT "FORREST GUMP"

"Forrest Gump" received six Academy Awards(R) including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Tom Hanks), Best Writing, Best Film Editing and Best Visual Effects. In the film, Tom Hanks gives an astonishing performance as Forrest, an everyman whose simple innocence comes to embody a generation. Alongside his mamma (Sally Field), his best friend, Bubba (Mykelti Williamson), his commanding officer, Lieutenant Dan (Gary Sinise), and his favorite girl, Jenny (Robin Wright), Forrest has a ringside seat for the most memorable events of the second half of the 20th century.

ABOUT "MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE"

In the first installment of the popular franchise, Tom Cruise stars as Ethan Hunt, a secret agent framed for the deaths of his espionage team. Fleeing from government assassins, breaking into the CIA's most impenetrable vault, clinging to the roof of a speeding bullet train, Hunt races like a burning fuse to stay one step ahead of his pursuers... and draw one step closer to discovering the shocking truth.

ABOUT "TITANIC"

Acclaimed filmmaker James Cameron's timeless and unforgettable tour de force won 11 Academy Awards(R) and triumphs as a true cinematic masterpiece. In the movie, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet light up the screen as Jack and Rose, the young lovers who find one another on the maiden voyage of the "unsinkable" R.M.S. Titanic. But when the doomed luxury liner collides with an iceberg in the frigid North Atlantic, their passionate love affair becomes a thrilling race for survival.

ABOUT "INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE"

There's nothing more exciting than trying to keep up with the Joneses in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." Indy's (Harrison Ford) Nazi enemies are back and have kidnapped his father, Professor Henry Jones Sr. (Sean Connery), to get help in their search for the Holy Grail. Following a trail from America to Venice to the deserts of the Middle East, it's up to Indy to save his father, save the Grail and save the day in this non-stop, action-packed adventure the whole family will treasure.
