Screening with creator Chris Strompolos in person, and launch of the new book by Alan Eisenstock! In 1982, best friends Chris Strompolos, 10, and Eric Zala, 11, shared a vision to remake Raiders of the Lost Ark shot-for-shot using the resources around them (namely a backyard and their parents’ basements). Seven years later, after almost burning down a house and nearly killing Eric, their film became what Ain’t It Cool News’s Harry Knowles called “The greatest fan film of all time” and has since gotten an enormous response all over the world. For this event we present the entire 100 minute adaption, with Chris Strompolos in person along with Alan Eisenstock, whose new book Raiders! The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made will be available.
