Friday Foto Fun: Raiders of the Lost Ark Scene at City Hall

I’ve probably seen the original Raiders of the Lost Ark millions of times, and I don’t mean that in a metaphorical way. From the original release in theaters, to cable, to DVD, videotapes, and whatnot, if this movie is ever on, I have to watch at least part of it. One of the more memorable nights I had at the Lone Palm years ago was a discussion led by the bartender about how “sexy” everyone looks in the original film.
What I never realized, though was that in this final scene, they’re in City Hall. It never really occurred to me that this is in fact Our City Hall and not somewhere else. I always knew that Treasure Island subbed for the Berlin Airport in the last one, but it just sorta hit me today, “duh that IS City Hall!”
