Alloy Orchestra returns to the historic Oriental Theatre, and this time things are going to get prehistoric! This silent adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic tale of a ragtag crew in search of a dinosaur-filled land untouched by time is a rip-roaring adventure that's fun for the whole family. Combine Willis O'Brien's pioneering stop-motion effects (eight years before his work on King Kong!) with the vibrant electric accompaniment only Alloy Orchestra can provide and you have the recipe for an unforgettable night at the movies.
