Mmm … Tasty Monkey Brains

Listen, context is everything. Is Indiana Jones' sidekick Short Round in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom a bit … um … un-P.C. by today's standards? Perhaps. Is the film's depiction of Hinduism and India on par with, say, a Three Stooges short's portrayal of bone-wearing African tribesmen? Maybe. And is Kate Capshaw a huge step down from Karen Allen as female lead after Raiders of the Lost Ark? Oh, hell yes. But just remember two things: The movie was made in 1984 and IT'S NOT KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL! Thank God for tender mercies and thank Granada Theater, 3524 Greenville Ave., for giving you the chance to see the second best Indiana Jones movie for only a $3 cover, plus $3 shots and beer specials, which will come in handy if watching the movie stirs up any Crystal Skull-related PTSD flashbacks. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. The show's for those 21 and older. Visit granadatheater.com.
