Moviehouse & Eatery presents: Big Screen Classics! Raiders of the Lost Ark and Pulp Fiction are coming soon! We’ve all seen these movies a dozen times, but here are a few things you might not know about the Spielberg and Tarantino flicks!

Raiders of the Lost Ark 9/30

1. In the “Well of Souls” scene, you can pause to see Star Wars characters R2D2 and C3PO hidden in a hieroglyph on the wall.

2. The opening scene in the South American temple and the boulder scene are based on Disney’s Uncle Scrooge Adventures comics from the 1950s, particularly “The Prize of Pizarro” and “The Seven Cities of Cibola”. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas both loved the comics growing up.

3. Although Spielberg and Lucas were already respected names in Hollywood, film studios were hesitant to fund the project.

4. Indy’s line to Marion Ravenwood “It’s not the years, honey, it’s the mileage” was ad-libbed.


Pulp Fiction 10/7

 

 1. John Travolta was not Quentin Tarantino’s first choice to play Vincent Vega. Take a look at a leaked “Dream Cast” of Pulp Fiction, written by Tarantino himself.


2. The dance that John Travolta and Uma Thurman perform at Jack Rabbit Slims was copied movement by movement from a dance scene performed by Barbara Steele and Mario Pisu in the Federico Fellini classic 81/2.

 

3. Pulp Fiction is the first of many collaborations of Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson, not including True Romance, which Tarantino wrote. 

 

4. The movie cost $8 million to make, $5 million of which went to pay the actors’ salaries.

Big Screen Classics at the Moviehouse are perfect for taking a trip down memory lane! Every Wednesday this fall, see your favorite movies back up on the big screen. Reserve your half-priced recliner and enjoy a hand-picked classic movie! Here’s what we’ve got planned for the rest of the year:
