SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Hollywood's classic 1981 adventure movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark" is to be released in select IMAX theaters for a week next month, Paramount said.

The one-week engagement is to begin Sept. 7.

"When I saw the stunning quality of the picture and heard the enhanced sound in an IMAX theater, I was quite literally blown away and hope that audiences will enjoy the experience as much as I did," said director Steven Spielberg.

"We are honored to present all the excitement of Indiana Jones in a way it's never been experienced before -- IMAX," said Greg Foster, chairman and president of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "We look forward to celebrating this iconic film with longtime fans as well as a new generation of moviegoers."

The four Indiana Jones movies, starring Harrison Ford as the swashbuckling archeologist, will be released by Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Media Distribution on Blu-ray as part of "Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures" Sept. 18. The set features 7 hours of bonus material, including a new two-part documentary entitled "On Set with Raiders of the Lost Ark -- From Jungle to Desert and From Adventure to Legend."
