A century or so ago, back when cinema was still in its infancy and synchronised sound hadn't yet revolutionised the movie-going experience, seeing a film also meant listening to a live show. Those days are long gone, of course. Next time you head to your local theatre, someone won't be playing the movie's music in front of you while you watch. But a heap of recent screenings have been harking back to those times — and the next one has an action-adventure classic in its sights.

Sydneysiders, it's time to grab your fedora and get cracking towards the Aware Super Theatre, because that's where you'll be celebrating Raiders of the Lost Ark's 40th anniversary rom 8pm on Saturday, August 21. The movie will screen, obviously, and The Metropolitan Orchestra will play John Williams' rousing score. Even if you haven't seen the film before — or watched it for years — everyone knows its famous theme tune.

For those in need of a refresher, plot-wise, Raiders of the Lost Ark kickstarted the Indiana Jones franchise by following its eponymous figure (as played by Harrison Ford) on his quest to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis. It's the movie that sparked three sequels to-date, and a fourth one supposedly still to come. Bringing a whip probably isn't recommended, but you know Indy will have one.
