Indiana Jones Premiere In Oklahoma City Not A Fundraiser?

This coming May 18th, the French will not be the only ones getting to enjoy a little Indiana Jones. At he same time the premiere is happening in Cannes, Oklahoma City will also receive a special showing of the fourth film in the series — but it’s not what you would expect. Instead of the usual “sell tickets to raise money for charity” scheme, the film is simply being shown to a select group of benefactors to the The Children’s Center, a nonprofit hospital for children with complicated medical problems.

This is odd (and directly contradicts info on Wikipedia. Shocking, I know) because the producer of Indiana Jones, Frank Marshall, debuted his movies The Bourne Ultimatum, The Bourne Supremacy and Eight Below in Oklahoma City as money-raising events for the charity. So why not take the opportunity to do the same with Indy? “As far as anything with a financial benefit, that’s not happening,” said Scott Coppenbarger, communications director for The Children’s Center. “When it was announced this morning, we had no idea what the logistics were and how this was all going to work out.”

So instead of selling tickets for insane money, Frank Marshall is instead going to pass? I’m sure those benefactors with deep pockets will be thrilled, but I can’t help but feel like they’re missing out on a great opportunity here to make a difference.

Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull debuts to the public on May 22nd. For a look at the trailer, click more below.
