Listen to Dinosaurs Roar During a Spectacular, Outdoor Screening of This Steven Spielberg Hit

Next Friday, take the whole family to a special outdoor screening of Jurassic Park! That’s right – on June 14th, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts continues its H-E-B Cinema on the Plaza series with the Steven Spielberg classic. Check it out at the Will Naylor Smith River Walk Plaza beginning at 8:00 p.m.

In Steven Spielberg's massive blockbuster, paleontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) and mathematician Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) are among a select group chosen to tour an island theme park populated by dinosaurs created from prehistoric DNA. While the park's mastermind, billionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough), assures everyone that the facility is safe, they find out otherwise when various ferocious predators break free and go on the hunt.

Jurassic Park is regarded as a landmark film for its use of computer-generated imagery. During its release, the film grossed more than $914 million worldwide, becoming the most successful film released up to that time. Taking inflation into account, Jurassic Park is the 20th-highest-grossing film in North America. It is the most financially successful film for NBC Universal and Steven Spielberg. More recently, the Jurassic Park franchise has witnessed a resurgence in popularity thanks to recent films Jurassic World (2015) and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018), both starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the lead roles.

Concessions will be available for purchase, including a full bar for adults over the age of 21. This event will provide seating, but it is recommended that you BYOC (Bring Your Own Chair). Unfortunately, no pets are allowed on the Plaza.

Don’t miss this free family friendly event next Friday night! Please note that the film is PG-13; kids under the age of 13 are permitted, but please use your best judgment as to whether the movie is appropriate for them. The movie starts at 8:00 p.m. Plaza will open at 7:00 p.m. For more information, visit
