Cue the John Williams music.

“Indiana Jones” is coming and a giant, rolling stone is hot on his heels — followed by a hungry T. rex, “Dr. Frank N. Furter,” Beyoncé, Tom Cruise in an F-14 Tomcat and John Travolta’s wave-shaped hair.

Movies in Park, produced by Downtown Grand Rapids Inc., will be back this summer, and the agency released the official lineup for the series today in a post on its Facebook page.

The lineup — which the agency teased out in a short film last month — is full of silver-screen hits.

“We are still taking suggestions for the Voters’ Choice night,” the post says. “If you have any ideas of what we should show, be sure to let us know.”

The agency also invites people to get a copy of the movie poster at its office, at 29 Pearl St. NW.
