Tampa, Fl Raiders At Tampa Theatre says
Raiders! Double Feature (2015)
3h 43m / Not Rated / Documentary + Fan Film

Dates and Times

Tampa Theatre is proud to present a very special double feature engagement of Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made, a documentary about a group of dedicated young fans and their decades-long mission to recreate all of Raiders of the Lost Ark, followed by a screening of the fan film itself, Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation.

The recreation of Raiders began in 1982, when the three kids who were its creators and stars were just 12 years old. Over the next seven summers, they did their level best to make the entire movie, shot for shot, in their own backyards. They attended screenings of the movie in an attempt to memorize it; they collected magazine articles and photographs to try to fill in details; they even drew their own storyboards. The movie they made has long been a legend on the Internet and a cult favorite among die-hards who’ve been able to get a copy. It even appeared at one of Harry Knowles’ famous Butt-Numb-a-Thon film festivals. Finally, in 2014, the gang of friends raised money on Kickstarter to reunite and film the one scene they were never able to recreate — the airplane scene.

But despite its origin as a summer project for three friends in Mississippi, you can’t spend seven years on a movie without stress, devotion and a lot of conflict. Raiders! tells their story with warmth, depth, insight, a little lunacy and a lot of love. We’re very happy, for one night only to be able to present the whole story on our screen of what is, indisputably, the greatest fan film ever made.

Following the double-feature screening, Raiders! fan film creator Eric Zala will host an audience Q&A LIVE from the Tampa Theatre’s historic stage.
