About the film:
An epic adventure 65 million years in the making! This first installment in the Jurassic Park franchise stunned audiences around the world and became the highest-grossing film of its time. The dinosaurs were created with groundbreaking computer-generated imagery by Industrial Light & Magic, and with life-sized animatronic dinosaurs built by Spielberg’s frequent collaborator Stan Winston. The film won more than twenty awards, including three Academy Awards for its technical achievements in visual effects and sound design. In 2018, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
In the film, a wealthy entrepreneur secretly creates a theme park featuring living dinosaurs drawn from prehistoric DNA. Before opening day, he invites a team of experts and his two eager grandchildren to experience the park and help calm anxious investors. However, the park is anything but amusing as the security systems go off-line and the dinosaurs escape.

Steven Spielberg, often considered one of the most popular and influential filmmakers in the history of cinema, inspired audiences and future storytellers with his science-fiction and adventure blockbusters—like Jaws (1975), E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), Jurassic Park (1993) and the Indiana Jones films—as well as more serious films addressing the Holocaust, the Transatlantic slave trade, war, and terrorism. He won the Academy Award for Best Director for Schindler’s List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998), and has also been awarded a Kennedy Center honor, a Cecil B. DeMille Award, and an AFI Life Achievement Award. In recent years, his musical adaptation West Side Story (2021) received seven nominations at the 94th Academy Awards and The Fabelmans (2022) won the People’s Choice Award at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival.See our upcoming films
