RADIERS! The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made


Come dressed as your favourite character, get ready to answer some trivia questions and win some prizes!

This is the Hamilton Theatrical premiere and we want YOU to celebrate with us in the beautiful Zoetic Theatre! 

This is truly an indie, Indy film! 


After Steven Spielberg’s classic Raiders of the Lost Ark was released 35 years ago, three 11-year-old boys from Mississippi (Eric Zala, Chris Strompolos and Jayson Lamb) set out on what would become a 7-year-long labor of love and tribute to their favorite film: a faithful, shot-for-shot adaptation of the action adventure film. They finished every scene…except one; the film’s explosive airplane set piece.

Over two decades later, the trio reunited with the original cast members from their childhood in order to complete their masterpiece. Featuring interviews with John Rhys Davies, Eli Roth and more, Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made is just that: the story of this long-gestating projects culmination, chronicling the friends’ dedication to their artistic vision mixed in with some movie magic to create a personal, epic love letter to a true modern classic.

It’s a story about the filmmaking process, an indexing of the raw imagination, steadfast determination and persistence of vision that’s required to pursue one’s passions. It’s also about getting dragged by trucks, falling out of trees, experimenting with industrial plaster and setting your friends on fire!
