Jason and the Argonauts

Saturday, 2/11 & Sunday 2/12

"Great old-fashioned fun, spiced with imaginative Ray Harryhausen's special effects."
— Phil Hall, Examiner.com

“For sheer old-fashioned, childhood rekindling adventure you really can't go past it."
— Ian Nathan, Empire Magazine

Fantastic special effects by Ray Harryhausen and exciting mythological adventures make this a film that is fun for everyone. It's the story of Jason (Todd Armstrong), a fearless sailor and explorer, who returns to the kingdom of Thessaly after a 20 year voyage to make his rightful claim to the throne. But to do so, Jason must first find the magical Golden Fleece. He selects a crew and with the help of Hera, Queen of the Gods, sets sail in search of the Fleece. Jason and his crew must overcome incredible obstacles including a 100-foot bronze giant, the venomous Hydra—a huge creature with the heads of seven snakes—and a spectacular battle with an army of skeletons.
