JURASSIC PARK @ MEERENDAL (24 Feb)
In its time, Jurassic Park was at the cutting edge of CGI, bringing dinosaurs to life and setting a new standard in the process. Just like those first visitors, audiences were blown away by the eye-popping visuals and compelled by Steven Spielberg's dramatic realisation. Some 80 years after Arthur Conan Doyle's science fiction adventure, The Lost World, captivated readers resulting in a film adaptation in 1925, Jurassic Park reinvented the genre in blockbuster fashion. Almost 25 years later, Jurassic Park remains a classic, conjuring up nostalgic feelings for kids who sat in wonder at the real-life museum exhibit. The film has aged well, a testament to the excellent film-making, gripping storyline and ceaseless theme park peril that launched a franchise and necessitated the recent reboot, Jurassic World. Where would we be without T-Rex and those pesky velociraptors? Now you can watch Jurassic Park out in the open, just remember to keep a glass of water nearby... you know, just in case!
This spectacular and revolutionary adventure is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
