Jurassic Park Part of the Summer Fridays
“Life will not be contained. Life breaks free. It expands to new territories, crashes through barriers, painfully, maybe even dangerously.”
Jurassic Park is a spectacle of special effects and life-like animatronics, with some of Spielberg’s best sequences of sustained awe and sheer terror.
THE FILM SERIES AT GORTON PRESENTS:
Steven Spielberg’s phenomenally successful sci-fi adventure thriller is graced by state-of-the-art special effects. The film follows two dinosaur experts — Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler — as they are invited by eccentric millionaire John Hammond to preview his new amusement park on an island off Costa Rica. By cloning DNA harvested from pre-historic insects, Hammond has been able to create living dinosaurs for his new Jurassic Park, an immense animal preserve housing real brachiosaurs, dilophosaurs, triceratops, velociraptors, and a Tyrannosaur Rex. Accompanied by cynical scientist Ian Malcolm, who is obsessed with chaos theory, and Hammond’s two grandchildren, they are sent on a tour through Hammond’s new resort in computer controlled touring cars. But as a tropical storm hits the island, knocking out the power supply, and an unscrupulous employee sabotages the system so that he can smuggle dinosaur embryos out of the park, the dinosaurs start to rage out of control.
Jurassic Park won the Academy Awards for Best Sound, Best Sound Effects Editing & Best Visual Effects. It also won the Saturn Awards for Best Director, Best Writing and Best Special Effects.
