In 1978, Anger re-cut his landmark 1954 film, Inauguration Of The Pleasure Dome by several minutes. In addition, Anger changed the score for the film as well. Anger had previous selected Glagolitic Mass by Czech composer Leoš Janáček. This re-constructed version, offered here today features Anger's choice of the 1974 Electric Light Orchestra album, Eldorado as score. This edition of the film would be labeled by Anger as his "Sacred Mushroom Edition". Anger successfully screened this E.L.O. version of the film at the 1978 Boston Film Festival. This festival exhibition would be the only time in history this version of Anger's film would been seen, until now.
