A few of your favorite Steven Spielberg films are coming to life with Film Concerts Live!, IMG Artists and The Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency announced Tuesday. 

The co-venture’s latest brand is bringing feature films to concert halls and adding a symphony orchestra to play in sync with the pictures. The new project comes just in time for Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial‘s 35th anniversaries. 

Five-time Oscar winner John Williams’ film scores, in cooperation with Lucasfilm Ltd/Paramount Pictures and Universal Pictures, will be presented at major concert venues in LA and Switzerland. The Los Angeles Philharmonic will debut E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl in September while Raiders of the Lost Ark Live in Concert will make its world premiere in Lucerne, Switzerland, with the 21st Century Orchestra at KKL.
