Music of Raiders of the Lost Arc

“Raiders of the Lost Ark”

The film that gave the world one of its greatest movie heroes, Indiana Jones, is back and better than ever before! Relive the magic on the silver screen with original blockbuster adventure “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” featuring John William’s epic, Oscar-nominated score performed live by the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra alongside the film. Thrill to the heart-stopping action as Indy battles to keep the world safe from evil, while protecting antiquities of the past. This is a one-of-a-kind film that will be even more riveting with a live orchestral soundtrack.
