On June 3rd, the Old Franklin Schoolhouse is a booby-trapped temple, a Nepal tavern, a Nazi U-boat, and the Well of Souls!
RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: A Staged Radio Play Parody & Themed 35th Anniversary Party w. Outdoor Tiki Bar, Peruvian Finger Food, and Side Show Whip Stunts!
STARRING: Laurence Mintz as French archeologist Rene Belloq and Gestapo agent Arnold Toht, Michael Jarmus as museum curator Marcus Brody and Egyptian excavator Sallah, Danielle Illario as Indy's former flame Marion Ravenwood, and Jeff Maschi as Dr. Henry Walton Jones, Jr. (aka Indiana).
WITH: theatrical lighting, period costuming, Golden Age radio equipment, vintage commercials, fog effects, and, of course, extensive sound effects.
AND: Peruvian finger food (TBA) and an outdoor Tiki bar with Pisco Sours, Peru's national cocktail, Snakebites (natch), Chicha Morada, a sweet non-alcoholic drink made from purple corn, and a particularly potent, original concoction called "Adios, Satipo," served from a crystal skull.
ALSO: Danielle Illario sings Cole Porter in Cantonese (partly); that is, Willie Scott's version of "Anything Goes" from Temple of Doom.
FEATURING: a side show Bullwhip Artist performing a range of cracks and stunts including the "Throat Wrap Cut," a trick only a handful of whip artists can do (Indy does this in Temple of Doom when he wraps the guys throat and throws the whip into the ceiling fan), and "The Cairo Flash," a 3 piece crack Indy uses in Raiders to fend off his pursuers in the market; plus a range of slices and grabs and the fabled "Fire of God" flaming whip!
PLUS: A special introduction by film scholar Barry Monush. Monush is a researcher/curator at the Paley Center for Media (formerly the Museum of Television & Radio), the longtime editor of Screen World, and the author of numerous books on film, including a forthcoming book on Steven Spielberg.

JUST ADDED: In 1982, three eleven year olds decided to make a shot by shot remake of Raiders. Every scene. Every shot. Every stunt. It took them seven summers. Buy an advance ticket to Raconteur Radio's Raiders, and you'll automatically enter a raffle for a DVD copy of "Raiders! The Greatest Fan Film Ever Made" the homemade cult sensation Spielberg himself calls "hugely imaginative," and a poster signed by the three boys who made it. Available only to advance ticket holders!
Special $5 rebate at the door if you wear a fedora (or hang a bullwhip on your hip). Rebate on adult tix only.
