The filming of the new Indiana Jones movie in New Haven is old news by now, but I just found this fun article in an “Online Extra” Yale Daily News issue that was published on July 7. I’m posting it partly for archival reasons….It gives a good picture of what it was like to be in New Haven that week.

“Yale was Steven Spielberg’s first choice for filming, executive producer Kathleen Kennedy said, and the University suits the movie well given that much of its architecture looks so timeless.
“’Steven actually said he thought Yale was the most iconic-looking Ivy League school in the United States,’ Kennedy recalled.”
