Raiders of the Lost Ark to be screened at Royal Albert Hall

'Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark' is to debut at the Royal Albert Hall in London with a full concert orchestra.

The iconic movie - starring Hollywood legend Harrison Ford - was released in 1981 and its 35th anniversary will be marked with two special screenings at the world famous venue.

Lucy Noble, Royal Albert Hall's director of events, said: "Raiders is one of the most purely enjoyable movies in cinema history, with one of the greatest, most instantly recognisable scores.

"We've wanted to bring Indy to the Hall for years, and we're delighted to announce that it's finally happening.

"35 years on, this show will allow you to experience the magic of Raiders of the Lost Ark in a totally new way."

The Steven Spielberg-directed 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' tells the story of Dr. Indiana Jones' quest to find the Ark of the Covenant, which he believes to still hold the ten commandments.

The two shows - both of which are to be staged in March 2016 - will see John Williams' spectacular score played live on stage by the 21st Century Orchestra and tickets for the event are priced between £28 and £73.90.
