In 1989, three friends finished their fan adaptation of the 1981 classic, Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark. After six years of filming, it became a cult classic as the fan-made replica of the blockbuster was filmed shot-for-shot (almost). Raiders! follows the original filmmakers’ journey as they film the last of the adaptation two decades later. For more information, visit www.charlottefilmsociety.com. $5-$10.
