Explore a post-apocalyptic world with Nitehawk’s LIVE SOUND CINEMA presentation of Ralph Bakshi’s WIZARDS with a live, new original score by BLACK LODGE. Presented in 35mm!

After the death of his mother, the evil mutant wizard Blackwolf (Steve Gravers) discovers some long-lost military technologies. Full of ego and ambition, Blackwolf claims his mother’s throne, assembles an army and sets out to brainwash and conquer Earth. Meanwhile, Blackwolf’s gentle twin brother, the bearded and sage Avatar (Bob Holt), calls upon his own magical abilities to foil Blackwolf’s plans for world domination — even if it means destroying his own flesh and blood.

Providing the live score to Wizards is Black Lodge, a collective of musicians led by guitarist/composer Geoff Gersh, who re-score films and perform these original pieces live to them.

NOTE: This will be an experimental soundtrack featuring a new original score. The original soundtrack or audio will not be played.
