Look, we get it: The closing of “Jurassic Park — The Ride” at Universal Studios Hollywood over Labor Day Weekend was bittersweet.
On the one hand, you likely heard that a new, super-dino’d ride based on the “Jurassic World” movies will open in its place in 2019.
On the other hand, you might have breathed a sigh, knowing that, at least for the next few months, you wouldn’t meet any roaming dinosaurs around Universal City, like, on the 101.
Because you totally know those animatronic dinos left the ride at night, right?
But hold onto your T. Rex-related sighs, for there actually are a pack of prehistoric creatures, the size of tall trees, stomping back into Southern California, via the silver screen, for three nail-biting days.
It’s the return of “Jurassic Park,” in honor of its 25th anniversary, and the rapturous, raptor’d movie’ll roar at several local cinemas on Sunday, Sept. 16, Tuesday, Sept. 18 and Wednesday, Sept. 19.
Tickets? Stomp, claw, and leap over to Fathom Events to secure your Jeep, er, seat, or check at the box office of a theater showing the film.
A film that stars Laura Dern, Sam Neill, Richard Attenborough, and Jeff Goldblum, who memorably wanted us all to know that “life, uh, finds a way.”
Indeed it does, so best find your way to a screen showing this heartbeat-raising, feet-running-in-place gem, a movie that may only be 25 but feels much, much, much older, as in prehistorically older, as in… from the Jurassic.
