Did you really think we had seen the last of Isla Nublar on the big screen with Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom? Nah, don’t be silly. To celebrate its 25th Anniversary, Fathom Events will be giving us the opportunity to go back to 1993 with Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, Ian Malcolm, John Hammond, and the rest of the original Isla Nublar vistors, and experience the beauty and horror that was Jurassic Park.
While this will not be as grand as 2013’s 20th anniversary 3D rerelease, it is still a chance to revisit Jurassic Park on the big screen. Set to screen across a limited 500 theaters, there are only 3 days that you will be able to catch Stephen Spielberg’s cinematic masterpiece: Sunday September 16th, Tuesday September 18th, Wednesday, September 19th.
In addition to the Jurassic Park re-release, Universal will be including a 17 minute short showcasing an abbreviated version of the film compromised of scenes recreated and submitted by fans. A mixture of live action, stop-motion, and animation (computer and hand drawn) the short will showcase showcases some of the Jurassic Park‘s more memorable scenes as recreated by fans from around the world. The abridged short has been available online for a bit now, but if you plan on going to see the re-release, wait to watch it until then.
While there have been more opportunities to catch Jurassic Park in theaters in the past, there is nothing that compares to experiencing John Williams’ score as it plays over the first reveal of the Brachiosaurus or the terror of that first T-Rex attack. Remember how freaking awesome it was for you the first time that you saw it on the big screen? if you can, take someone who has yet to experience it. There are few things better than sharing a first-time Jurassic Park theatrical experience with another.
