Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation Screening and Vue present the U.K. charity premiere of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE ADAPTATION at Vue West End, Leicester Square on April 28, 2009.

Hailed as 'the greatest fan film yet', RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE ADAPTATION is a 100-minute recreation of the classic film. Started in 1982 by Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala at the age of 12, it took all their pocket money, unwavering dedication, astonishing ingenuity, plus a basement fire and the loss of a pair of eyebrows before the film was finally 'in the can' seven years later.

For 15 years, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE ADAPTATION nearly became a forgotten masterpiece until a screening at a film festival by Harry Knowles made it an overnight sensation. It was subsequently featured in VANITY FAIR and on THE TODAY SHOW. Fans include Eli Roth, Quentin Tarantino and even Steven Spielberg, who personally wrote to Chris and Eric: "Wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your very loving and detailed tribute to our RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK." and Vue will bring this highly talked about, but rarely-seen cult classic to the U.K. for the first time ever. Fans will have the opportunity to meet and greet the filmmakers and take part in a Q&A session. Plus, see exclusive props and win artwork from the original series and even indulge in some delicious bites at an Indy-themed food and drink reception.
