A tribute screening to the late master of special effects and stop motion animation Ray Harryhausen!
 
Most fantastic movies use special effects to create illusions of giant creatures and impossible battles. But very, very few of these films are courageous enough to use ACTUAL MAGIC. Well, it just so happens that effects ultra-mega-wizard Ray Harryhausen put every drop of his patented silver screen sorcery into JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, a rampaging, rollicking, rough-and-tumble mythological adventure that puts every other kid-friendly epic to shame.
 
Young warrior Jason travels halfway across the world in search of The Golden Fleece, flanked by Hercules and other courageous masters of adventure. Along the way, they’ll engage in hair-raising battles with wicked harpies, an army of skeletons, the multi-headed Hydra and a tremendous war giant made entirely of impenetrable metal! If every movie was this outrageously exciting, I’d marry a video store!
 
But there’s only one JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS!
